Galtymore, Co. Tipperary & Co. Limerick – 919m by Deirdre O’Sullivan Rafter
After parking the cars we headed up the black road towards a snow topped Galtymore pausing at a monument erected on the 20th September 2016 to mark the 40th anniversary of a plane crash which killed 3 Longford men , Tom Gannon, Jimmy Byrne & Dick O’Reilly their plane crashed above Glengarra Woods on route from Kilbrittain to Abbeyshrule in 1976. The stone monument is sculpted in the shape of the tail section of a plane. We made our way up on to the shoulder between Galtybeg and Galtymore overlooking Lough Diheen, again the covering of snow made for postcard like views , we had another little stop at the source of a natural spring which is supposedly the highest spring in the country at 850m. We did not hang around too long at the top of Galtymore as the wind was bitterly cold instead taking our break at the Galtee Wall where we had an amusing discussion about which side of the wall was warmer and more sheltered, the Tipperary or the Limerick side. We headed down towards Knockduff leaving Knocknagalty over to our right and down to Coopers Wood. Present: Michael Moroney, Maureen Browne, Helen Gleeson, Sadie Ryan, Sabrina Daly, Margaret Hayes, Deirdre Rafter.
