DSC_012448 walkers participated in the Clare Outdoor Club’s annual Try-a-Hike on Galtymore at the weekend.

Organisers say the “cool and calm weather was ideal for hillwalking and everybody made it to the top of the 917m mountain.”

Located on the border between counties Limerick and Tipperary, Galtymore s the highest of the Galty Mountains and the 14th highest peak in Ireland. It is notable in that it is the tallest inland mountain in Ireland, and the only inland peak to exceed 3000 feet.

A Clare Outdoor Club spokesperson told The Clare Herald: “It was smiles all round at the summit cross for photos and after a quick break the four groups descended back to the Glen of Aherlow and on to the hotel for some well-earned refreshments.”
