This year we are off to the Galtees, 12-14th of October for our now legendary, “Annual Away Trip”! Our scouting teams have been down Tipperary way and the routes for both an amazing B and C walk finalised, with Galtymore the highest inland peak at 919 m, the pinnacle of both walks!
Briefly our B’s will walk the Galty Horseshoe, starting on the Northern side of the Range, taking in Cush (639 m), Galtybeg (799m), then Galtymore (919 m) before descending by Slievecushnabinnia (766m). Our C’s will start on the Southern side taking a track called the Black Road, leading to the coll between Galtybeg and Galtymore, from there they will climb Galtymore, cross the top and take the same descent route via Slievecushnabinnia as our B Group. Both are long strenuous walks, around 5/5+ hours, but will end as always in a local pub for a well deserved pint and a bit of craic!
Please note, we are nearly at full capacity on this trip… even before we have advertised… so anyone intending to walk with us and not already on our list with their deposit paid, would need to get in touch asap! Cost is 200 Euros, which includes: bus to and from Tipperary, (and to and from walk starting/ending points), 2 nights B+B, 2 evening meals in the Cahir House Hotel, and a packed lunch for the walk. Places are filled on a “first come, first served basis” and only payment in full secures a place. All money must be paid in full by mid September.
Please note anyone intending to walk on this trip, must be out walking with us in the lead up to the trip away. Our walks over August/September are purposefully planned to be more challenging walks to prepare everyone for the event ahead.
