I’ve hiked the Galtee Mountains many times as up until recently I was living very close tho them. It was one of my favourite things about my old house, being able to see mountains from my bedroom window.
This was taken on Galteemore (mór mean big in Irish) as me and 2 friends were making our way up. These hills are very popular with hikers are there are a few parking areas dotted around the base and it’s easy to spend the day hiking and make it back to the car and home for a well-deserved dinner.
After taking a few shots I wandered over for a chat. I’ve been on hills up and down this country and hikers are always the same, always glad to stop for a chat even if it’s just an excuse to rest their legs for a minute or two. The people in the shot are from the Galtee Walking Club making their way home after an early start.
