The day I walked Galtybeg I started at R874 278 A. After summiting Slievecushnabinnia and Galtymore I reached Galtybeg and continued to Cush and finally back to the start - 14km , 4.5 hrs, 20 min stops.

I had a second route planned from the South via Knockeenatoung. The pic highlights the track one can take after coming down from Galtymore (when you want to avoid Galtybeg) and are heading home via Knockeenatoung.

Slievenamon (left) and the Commergahs (right) can be seen in the far distance. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/41/comment/2080/

Pity it misses my 800 metre tops collection by 1. However it makes part of a fine circuit from Aherlow if one descends northward to Cush. Attached pic shows the view of this, taken on the 2003 Galtees Walk Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/41/comment/553/
