Hillwalking Radio Group. We are a voluntary organisation providing emergency radio communications for many of the events on and around the general area of the Galtee Mountains. On average we are called out six times per year to provide two way radio support for various events in the community including The Galtee Crossing, both The Winter and Summer Walking Festivals, The Winter Solstice with our friends from the Irish Red Cross. Hill walking like all other recreational activities has a certain amount of risk like getting lost, injury and hypothermia. Weather conditions can change rapidly, prepare well for your adventure by checking out the safety information on any of the Mountain Rescue or Walking Club web sites. 'If in doubt don't go out' the mountain will always be there for you. In the meantime stay safe and we look forward to meeting you on the hills. Ag obair don phobail.
