Away Trip 2018

We head to the Galtees in Co Tipperary this weekend for our Annual Away Trip… and a popular trip it has turned out to be, with around 65 heading off!

Our B Group walk is a strenuous, horseshoe, looped walk starting and finishing in the Glen of Aherlow. It takes in 4 peaks: Cush, Galtymore, Galtybeg and Cushnabinnia. C Group will start on the opposite side of the range and climb Galtymore via the Black’s Road route and descend also into the Glen of Aherlow. Both groups will meet up in Moroney’s Pub of Lisvernane to swap stories and partake of a well deserved drink or two.

The forecast over the next few days is stormy but we are hopeful it will have blown over by Saturday morning. The Committee will make a call on the planned routes if the storm tracks more slowly, alternative routes offering greater shelter may be taken.

Walkers are reminded to pack plenty of layers of clothing, waterproofs and gaiters, both routes are likely to be slippery and muddy in places.

Bus leaving from the Gap at 2.15 pm Friday, we won’t be waiting on anyone!!!
