Jen and I are just back from a few days in Ireland. The main reason for the trip was to visit some of Jen’s relatives, but we did spend a couple of days walking in the Wicklow and Galty Mountains.
On Wednesday we climbed Lugnaquilla (Log na Coille), the highest hill in the Wicklow Mountains, from Glenmalur via Clohernagh. On Thursday we climbed Galtymore (Cnoc Mor na nGaibhlte) on the Limerick/Tipperary border and the highest hill in the Galty Mountains. The weather was mostly excellent, with the exception of very strong winds and driving rain near the summit of Galtymore.
