Re Coleman gas
Hi Calgarygirl, I can't give you definitive answers, but may be able to offer some useful info. Firstly, may I presume from your monicker that you are arriving from Canada? If so, it may help to know about my experience last year making the trip in the opposite direction. My partner and I spent a week travelling across Eastern Canada with a Camping Gaz stove for which we were unable to buy cartridges. Assurances by camping specialists here that Camping Gaz is sold in Canada turned out to have no basis. Basically, butane is common in Europe, but we found out that propane was the norm in North America because it works in lower temperatures. Of course, that's not to say that you are necessarily going to have the same problem as us in reverse, but I don't think Coleman is a brand you'll find easily available in Ireland. I see some references to it on the internet indicating it is available in specialised camping shops in England. Maybe some of you more hi-tech campers on MV will be able to confirm or correct me. I would be concerned that you might end up spending a lot of time valuable walking time hunting for suitable cartridges. Your best bet might be to buy a brand of burner that is commonly available in Europe at the start of your journey in Ireland, and you can probably do this in either Drogheda or Dundalk, the two main towns near the Dublin-Belfast road. You should be able to get the Ordnance Survey maps there too, though sometimes they only have the sheets for local areas. There is also an OSNI 1:25,000 map for the Mournes, which you should be able to buy in Newry. If you have trouble getting hold of sheet 10, try in Donegal Town. Hope this helps, and enjoy your trip! Paul
