Aherlow Winter Walking Festival. If you’re thinking of going…. you will need a time machine. What we saw of it was splendid – and it was this weekend. So wake up dozey and catch the next one. The Saturday “A” walk was a murderous flying run at Lough Curra, Galtymore, Galtybeg and Cush. Eventually! Five of your Mountainviewers all badged up, in a stampede of hundreds. You will be delighted to know you were not embarrassed. I, me, Cra, him, was down with the v fast team. In quick succession behind, new mviews wannabe and bigtime potential challenge walker Sean Og; hard on his heels and flying, Mr dhmiriam, next handful in with another new mviewer, the craghopping Majella Moyles and speedily next dhmiriam herself and the great Jackill. Usual festival horsefair mayhem at registration – but well defended by the Galtees (I think) Club – then a surprise that the whole human race was up for this walk. A fairly hiccuppy start, but good when under steam. The day was fair and frost-hard which transformed the usual muckfest that is the Galtees into something fablious. On the tops, the razor teeth of unshiftable freezing mist cut wealds in unwary skin and sent us scurrying into rabbit holes. The "A"s and Challengers as usual, caused a whole fuss by ignoring instructions and being quite unmanageable. Seriously though this is a prob at all festival walks. We are no good with authority. My solution is to have a pre-nominated challenge hardcore leader to get us offside at the very earliest and away from normal requirements. That way no one else is effed about. Anyhoo – other than that ….. then there was a completely bunged Aherlow House Hotel, endless spuds and stew and great stuff. Thanks and all hail the Aherlow team.
