The celebration of the club’s 10th anniversary took place at Aherlow House Hotel on Sunday with a 2-hour walk retracing the route of the first walk followed by a meal afterwards in the hotel.

After a welcome from chairman, Tom Lyons, Club President, Danny Bailey brought the 46 walkers on a loop past Rock an Thorabh and back by the Statue and the Nature Park. This was a perfect way to work up an appetite for the excellent fare served up by Aherlow House staff to all on their return. Recently crowned Pride of Tipperary, Donna Breen from Rossadrehid who had climbed Galtymore on a charity walk the previous day, wished the club well for the future and retired Tipperary butcher, John Bradshaw, spoke of his early experiences of walking in the Galtees. The club also welcomed Helen Morrissey of Aherlow Failte to the celebration. Many thanks to the management and staff of Aherlow House, and a special thanks to the club’s social secretary, Breda Ryan, and her colleagues.
