Straddling counties Tipperary, Limerick and Cork the Galtee Mountains at 919 metres above sea level are Ireland’s highest inland mountain range. Set in a beautiful part of the country that includes the Glen of Aherlow on the north side and Glengarra Woods to the south the Galtee Mountains attracts visitors from near and far all year round. The Galtee Mountains have their own history, myths and legends that add an air of mystery to the area.
During this hour long programme Margaret Blackburn will speak to several contributors from different groups involved with the Galtees Mountains asking what makes this area so attractive for tourists, hillwalkers and historians alike.
Ms Blackburn will speak to Helen Morrissey, of the Glen of Aherlow Tourist Board, Tom Lyons and Pat Ryan, of The Galtee Walkers, Jimmy Barry, of the South Eastern Mountain Rescue, and Mike Moroney, of Aherlow Walks. These contributors will talk of their passion of this little part of Ireland they call home
