John G. O'Dwyer has walked the mountains and moorlands of Tipperary and Waterford for many years. His comprehensive guide to the best, most captivating walks in these counties features walks to suit all tastes, from the rugged Comeragh coums to the peaks of the Galtees, from the myth laden hills of Slievenamon and the Devil's Bit to field systems and ancient pathways in Upperchurch and Kilcommon. Each walk description has directions, the degree of difficulty, estimated time and maps. But this is more than just a walking guide. Each route is a journey with a story about a landscape littered with historic artefacts. A booley on a hillside tells how the uplands contributed to human survival, a ruined cottage confirms a battle lost. This guidebook describes walks not just for committed hillwalkers and casual ramblers: it also contains much of interest for environmentalists, historians and all who wish to understand the age-old interaction between humans and hills.
