Welcome to the Galtee Walking Club

Hello and failte to the Galtee Walking Club, Cnocadóiri na Gaibhlte, based in and around Tipperary in Ireland. Our club has been in existence since 2003 and was founded by a core group of hill walking enthusiasts from around the foothills of the Galtee mountains and the Glen of Aherlow in South Tipperary. Since then, it has grown and diversified and now has a membership drawn from a wide area. We offer a number of different graded walks on a regular weekly basis throughout the year which are available to new members or to those wishing to join us for an introductory hike.  more

Galtee Challenge 2022

Challenge 2022 Photo Album

This year marked the 18th Galtee Challenge/Crossing and was considered to be the toughest weather-wise. 130 people took to the Galtee mountains early on the morning of Saturday, June 25th, starting out with quite pleasant weather but conditions deteriorated rapidly during the afternoon with Mother Nature giving very unseasonable June weather! Well done to everyone for enduring the 31 km 1700m challenge from Cahir to Anglesborough.
