Galtee walkers weather the storm

After a stormy Saturday night, surprisingly benign conditions on Sunday allowed for some good walking. Leading out from Mountain Road Cahir, Liz McNamara provided a most enjoyable three hours C walk for a dozen walkers through Scarrough Woods, taking in a round of the Bane mountain foothills overlooking Cahir, where sadly, many old Scottish pines lay stretched across the forest floor and along the forest paths.

Visibility was good and stretching south, the flooded fields were all too visible. All were grateful for this spirited walk in the fresh mountain air and well-done Liz for her gracious and careful navigation.

Paul Ryan was also out with a select group of A walkers in the Galtees, completing the Cush Horseshoe in dry but windy conditions. They extend thanks to Pat as pacemaker. The B group had a trip to lake Dineen with Pat Donovan. Blown around a bit but got home dry. Rodger and Brendan’s help greatly appreciated.

Next weeks walks: The A walkers meet with Anthony O’Brien at Kilcoran Lodge Hotel at 10am and Catherine Russell will meet the B group at Rossadrehid Waterworks, also at 10am. Check out the details for the upcoming Beara Breife hike on our website.


Clanwilliam were back in action last Sunday after a 3-week break because of the recent terrible weather conditions.

Our U7 to U12’s travelled to Galbally RFC with Clonmel RFC also in attendance. We had great numbers with everyone very keen to get going after the long break; there was a great display of rugby skills on the day by all teams and thankfully the rain stayed away.

Thanks to all the parents for their support and to our hosts Galbally for their hospitality.

Training continues every Saturday at 1030am. New players always very welcome, no experience needed...
