Video of the 2022 Challenge by Sole Trail

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, 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.
Thank you to everyone who helped to organise and run this event in any way - it definitely would not have been possible without you.  A very special thanks to the Hillwalking Radio Group for providing invaluable VHF radio communications, to Aidan and Hilary Dilworth for the registration and help in the hall in Anglesborough, Martina Lonergan and Joe O'Brien for the delicious cakes and scones, Anne O'Donnell, Breda Ryan and Doreen Hennessy for managing the catering in the hall, Thos O'Neill and Pat Ryan for doing the job of sweepers on the route, Anne O'Donnell, Eoin Lonergan, Tom Lyons, James Bourke and John Lonergan for their help on the mountain - bringing people to safety,  answering any queries and opening fences, Pat Riggs for the certs, the local farmer for use of his field for parking, Goretti Campbell, Pat Kinane and all the club members who turned up to welcome participants back and the community of Anglesborough for facilitating a large crowd in their community.
