11 July 2021

Sunday 11 July 2021, there were two walks available within the Mid-Tipp Hillwalkers.

Ollie Walsh led the A walk with 12 walkers. Cars were parked at boolies trailhead and the group walked into the inside lake in Coum Iarthar and then climbed up the ramp beside the pinnacle to enjoy lunch with lovely views of the lake. The group then traversed on the intermediate track to Carrignagower with beautiful views of Coum Iarthar loughs and the valley below, before returning to the cars. A very enjoyable walk with minimal rain.

Kate Fahey led 16 walkers on the C walk in the east Galtees – tracking uphill through forest tracks on to open mountain. Met a large group of walkers on Slievenard NE. Lunched at a cairn in perfect weather and good views. On to Slievenard, then
followed forest tracks back to the cars. A lovely day out with great chat all day.
