Jumping Jackill – or to be more accurate, hopping Jackill, pointed a weary finger towards Greenane with instructions for us to do something and he limped and grumbled off Galty Beg as fast as his leg would carry him. A sterling effort he had made on to Galtee More, Galty Beg but not Greenane. One hoof had given up – a hoof he had abused in some earlier folly. Given he had mountainviewers msmurty and myself in tow – and we do not hang about – this was quite an achievement. The sun was blazing – a complete novelty for me in these big show-off hills and a presentation of what makes Irish inland hills so special. Unlike other Irish/British big hills, the Galtees in full splendour show us a mindboggling 360 degree tableau of the flattest, greenest, patchwork Ireland for what seems like ever. For a Mournes man like myself, it can be disorientating. Despite being a track rat to my toes, I have made a b.lix of these hills several times. I find distance across them from a visual start, difficult to gauge and have set out on the run of tops only to find I am fighting the clock and approaching a grim demise. So watching the sun creep lower, I opted to come off at Greenane West down tussocky stuff and sidling past, of all strange things, a herd of Belted Galloways.
The high point (oosps) of these hills from this direction in my view (oh no – oosps again) is the scene Aherlow-wards from the tops. You pull up the dullest oul peat haggard terrain with absolutely no redeeming features, to emerge on to the summits and Panavision views of a breathtaking world below. Galtees from the South Eastish – a v. good deal on a v. good day. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/41/comment/6396/
