I hadn't visited Lough Curra in I guess 4 years but today the dog, the wife and I were blessed with bright sunshine for a relaxing ramble to its summit. Towering buttresses of naked red sandstone rocks hanging above us, snow filled gullys leading the eye up to the rocky summit of Galtymore, two red dots of spidermen slowly ascending one.
Lough Curra and Lough Diheen are mentioned as being of note in
" Atlas and Cyclopedia of Ireland" (1900)By P. W. JOYCE
Mr Joyce also gives the following explanation of the original name for the Galtys which I hadn't come across before.
"The Galty Mountains were anciently called Crotta-Cliach or Slieve-Crot or Slieve-Grod, which name is still preserved in that of the old Castle of Dungrod, in the Glen of Aherlow, near Galbally.
Beside Cashel there were anciently three royal residences in Tipperary. One was Caher, the old name of which was Caher-Dun-Isga; the present castle, on the rock in the Suir, occupies the site of an old circular stone fort or caher, which was destroyed in the 3d century; and that caher was erected on the site of a still older dun or earthen fort. The second was Dun-Crot, which is now marked by the old castle of Dungrod (mentioned above), a comparatively modern edifice, built on the site of the old dun. The third was Knockgraffon, about 3 miles north of
Caher, which was the residence of Fiacha Mullehan, king of Munster in the 3d century. The remains of this old palace are still standing, consisting of a very fine high mound; it is celebrated in legend, and the surrounding parish still retains its name--Knockgraffon."
