Easily done on the way to Galtymore
by Aidy  21 Aug 2020
Summited Galtybeg on the way to Galtymore - easily done from the Black Road. It was a fantastic way to end an enforced break from the mountains due to Covid 19 restrictions, and a huge pleasure to be out again. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/41/comment/20860/
