   picture about Greenane (<em>An Grianán</em>)
Picture: Greenane from the west
Greenane is a grassy, rocky plateau to the E of Galtymore. It overlooks the Glen of Aherlow and, closer, Lough Muskry and its corry to the N. Further afield are extensive views of the Knockmealdowns and Comeraghs. V steep ground to the N should command respect in all weather.

N. Park at forest entrance near Rosadrehid at LkMuskry (R91744 28241). Follow forest track S for 2k before coming to a gate at A (R92408 26675) that leads out onto open mountain. Once a suitable point is found to cross the river, climb the spur to Farbreega. From here follow the ridge to Greenane. 2hrs+ This can be done as part of a horseshoe…see track/1587

SW. Start from carpark at Galtwy Rd (R89306 20345) and follow the Black road, a rocky, easy-to-follow track that winds around the W flank of Knockeenatoung and up towards Galtybeg. When you reach a large cairn at a 'Y' in the track go straight ahead and aim for B (R89703 24136), the col over Bohreen Lough, and then uphill and across a broad boggy plateau to the summit of Greenane W. Continue E dropping slightly by the rocky tor of O'Loughlins castle after which you will need to wind gingerly through v wet bog before the final ascent to the summit trig of Greenane. 2.5 hrs+

S. Park at C (R92426 19821)and head N through the forest. Aim to clear the forest in the vicinity of D (R92476 22043), head up E to gain the SSE ridge of G and make your way steeply to the summit. 2 hrs

Notable tracks incl track/1587, track/2796 and the long linear route over the eastern Galtees.track/2303

Circuit of Lough Muskry
by TommyV 31 Oct 2018
This is a looped walk of Lough Muskry starting at a forest park entrance a few kilometers from Rosadrehid at LkMuskry (R91744 28241). Follow the forest track South for 2km before coming to a gate at A (R92408 26675) that leads out onto the Galtees. Once a suitable point is found to cross the river, climb the spur to Farbreega. From here it's a ridge walk around to Greenane, onto the unusual rock formations known as O'Loughlins Castle then on to Greenane West before descending to Lough Muskry. From here it's easy to follow the river North back to the gate at the forest trail, 2km along this leads back to the start point. Linkback:

The third peak on our hike, greenane is a bit of a legend fom my youth. My grandfather lived at the Cahir end of the Galtees and always wanted to walk over to lough Muskry, in the correy of Greenane. My grandmother would never let him go alone (very sensible) so I was parceled off with him. Unfortunately being about 10 my stamina was not up to the task and we never made it. I have since made the trip a couple of times including a somewhat insane scramble up a stream on the back wall of the correy. My grandfather and I made it to the lake on another occasion, coming up from the glen of Aherlow. Here is a shot of me sitting beside the triangulation point nursing a pair of blisters. Linkback:

Walking along the Galtee ridge makes a change from just going up Galtymore and back, although the flat top of Greenane isn't very distinctive. We had planned to descend into Glengarra Wood, but had to skirt around it because the Garda were there investigating a dead body. Linkback:

I climbed Greenane from the Youth Hostel. At the time I was only 8 years old and the climb was cool. Linkback:
