Temple Hill cairn

Tuesday, 30 December, 2014

The most westerly of the Galtee Mountains is called Temple Hill. Its somewhat conical shape can be seen above on the right-hand side of the this website’s header image. Yesterday, Temple Hill provided the route for bracing hike to a frosty summit whipped by a freezing wind. The hikers were Joe Prendergast, Johannes Kowal, Tom Sheehan, Neddy Coleman, Mike Upton, Father Tom Breen and Eamonn Fitzgerald. Note: A cairn is a man-made pile of stones. The word comes from the Gaelic: càrn.
