New Walking Guide to Tipperary and Waterford

John G. O’Dwyer has rambled the mountains and moorlands of Tipperary and Waterford for many years and  he has now put this huge experience to good use  in his new guide  book to Walking in  Tipperary and Waterford which is being published by the Collins Press.  The book is a  comprehensive guide to the best, most captivating walks in those counties and features walks to suit all tastes, from the rugged Comeragh coums to the peaks of the Galtees, from  myth-laden Slievenamon and the Devil’s Bit to field systems and ancient pathways in Upperchurch and Kilcommom. Each walk description has directions, the degree of difficulty, estimated time and maps.

But in many ways  this is more than just a walks guide. Each route is a journey with a story to tell about a landscape littered with historic artifacts. A booley on a hillside shows how the uplands contributed to human survival, a working farmstead demonstrates the continuation of this, a ruined cottage confirms a battle lost. This guidebook describes walks not just for committed hillwalkers and casual ramblers but  also contains much of interest for environmentalists, historians and all who wish to better understand the age-old and complex interaction between humans and hills.
