A walk was led by Eoin Wolahan. They drove past the Vee and on from the Bay Lough car park for about three miles where they parked their cars and commenced their walk. They crossed the Glenakeefe river and made the long ascent up to the top of Knockmealdown Mountain. From there they had a long walk to Cnoc na gCnamh where they had our lunch. From their they continued to point 640 and then descended to Duke’s stone. They then made the long descent to their cars passing by a number of rivers, taking in beautiful areas such as Dyrick, Knockananaugh and Raynabarna. The walk was thoroughly enjoyed by all thirteen participants. They had excellent walking weather and stunning views in the sunshine. Total length was 11.2km, total ascent 687m, total descent was 687m. A warm welcome to Matthew from Germany who is in Ireland for a couple of months volunteering at a special needs school in Cashel.
A group of thirteen led by Eddie Morrissey took part in the B Walk on the Galtees today. The group started in the very busy Glencushabinnia carpark. They headed onto the hill over the Lough Curra style and after crossing the Clydagh River they made their way uphill to Lake Diheen. The group enjoyed lunch overlooking the lake. They descended from there and then returned via Cush to the cars.
On the way to Cush the group watched in awe as a local farmer with his sheep dogs gave a masterclass in sheep herding. For five members of the group it was their first time on Cush so they took a moment to sign the book at the summit.
