John G. O'Dwyer, author of Tipperary & Waterford - A Walking Guide, is a travel consultant and a teacher of tourism studies. A keen hillwalker and rock-climber, he is a founder member of Mid-Tipp Hillwalkers and has almost 25 years' experience of leading hillwalking and mountain climbing groups in Ireland, the UK, Europe and Africa.
"The author recounts his feelings and experiences, and describes the entertaining and insightful characters he meets along the way."
"This one has earned its place in the rucksack."
"A great addition to the seasoned hillwalker's library."
"Beautifully produced with fine photographs and clear, if rather basic, maps."
"Even in familiar surroundings O'Dwyer's prose seems fresh ... for those who are prepared to acknowledge a rationale beyond just visiting summits, this may well end up being considered to be a bit of a minor classic."
"Attractive little guide."
"This book acts as the perfect satnav. It leads you along your chosen path."
