The A walk group of eight, led by Ollie Walsh did a very interesting loop in the West Galtees. Beginning at Clydagh Bridge, they crossed at low level as far as Glounegarriff Glen, and then scrambled up a lovely dry gully to the Galtee Wall for lunch, returning over Slievecushnabinna. In lovely weather, it was a great walk.

A group of seven walkers on a ‘B’ walk led by Eddie Morrissey completed an interesting circuit on the Knockmealdown mountains. Starting at The Vee they followed the Glenmoylan valley upstream and after skirting around the shores of the disappeared Lough Moylan they gained height quickly before emerging in the col between Sugarloaf Hill and Knockmealdown. Some of the group savoured the joys of the Deise before lunch on the slopes of Knockmoylan in the premier county. Energised by a well-earned lunch and invigorated by a freshening breeze they soon reached Knockmoylan before descending by Knockshane to reach the bridge where the East Munster Way, the Tipperary Way and St. Declan’s Way intersect. The fabulous views and a mysterious ‘gadget’ enhanced the enjoyment of the day.
