Book search - Ireland coast to coast
Sorry to but in on the banter, guys. Can anybody help me identify and/or locate a book written by a Scotsman (not weedavie or anyone else of this parish!) including an account of some kind of coast-to-coast walk across Ireland from Wicklow to Kerry/Cork combining all the Irish 3000 footers? I remember reading this in the early 90s, and had a feeling it was Hamish McInnes, but haven't had any luck googling for it. I'm after a particular passage where he talks about the Scots very sparing use of the word 'mountain' (cos everything's a hill there) compared to the extravagant Irish use, where a 200m height can be a mountain (such as Maulin Mountain near Kerry Head). I have a vague memory that he talks about growing up in Clackmannanshire, if that helps! Any leads gratefully received. Paul

While it's never going to be hard to climb a 310m hill, this one does put up something of a fight when approaching it from the North, with defenses of mush rush, barbed gorse and little tracks.The...
