Part of our trip to Ireland was to try and go up the ‘Munros’ of the South West. Our first stop was Galtymore, which we went up from the Black road. It’s been a very dry spring in Ireland and Galtymore is usually a very boggy hill apparently, but for us it was firm underfoot. One aspect of Irish hills that is different from ours is the deep peat found at 900 metres. The blip is the peat hags on the col between Galtybeg and Galtymore, and the extra is of the conglomerate tors at the top looking towards Cashel.
