Galtee Walking Club
Rugby concerns last Sunday saw a shortened A walk for this hardy band of walkers. But ten of them including three new walkers, took on Cush mountain, beating a novel trek up from Clydagh Bridge via the fire break to the northerly side.
But ten of them including three new walkers, took on Cush mountain, beating a novel trek up from Clydagh Bridge via the fire break to the northerly side.
Conditions were good but a bit foggy, with left over snow visible in the gullies on the higher peaks. A lunch break was had at the summit before the group split, with some going further on to Lake Dineen and others making a return journey via O’Briens yard. All got back within four hours to enjoy the great match.
Liz Breen led her first walk for the club when she facilitated 16 of the B group in the Cappawhite area. This was a lovely forest track and road walk, covering 21kms, which took in Red Hill and the site of the crashed plane at the highest point of 440m. Afterwards, Liz and her sister shared her achievement with the group by providing delicious cream buns which were greatly appreciated by the hungry walkers. A nice touch. Congratulations and thanks to Liz.
