Maps and Coleman gas
Thanks pdtempan and dhmiriam for your helpful advice! We will be driving through Newry so that will be convenient, and we will call ahead to Eason and Millets to see if they have both maps and Coleman gas. We use white gas (Coleman gas) in our MSR stove and have been able to find it all over the world, and we know that some places in Ireland carry it, but it helps to possibly have a store that's along our route as we head north. Worst case scenario we can burn gasoline as fuel for our stove, but stinky and a bit poisonous! We have a few of Paddy Dillon's books but I agree that the information we have gathered on MV is far more useful and practical - although we already have the Lonely Planet "Walking in Ireland" book that we can use to help us with some logistics as well. For western Canada we find the website Clubtread.com very useful (click on Message Board), somewhat similar to MV in that people post trip reports - but also has forums to discuss trail conditions etc. so if you guys ever find yourselves wanting to hike in western Canada that is a great place to search for info. We only have a week in Ireland but will make the most of it by hiking the entire week (we arrive June 18 at 8am in Dublin), so if you see a yellow Black Diamond tent set up near a walking route or scramble route in the Mournes or Donegal area it is likely myself and my husband. Thanks again! Nadine Moneta

Barranisky: Barniskea or Barniskey

Might be worth adding that Ballymoyle Hill might be more appropriate name for this height. Called that in Coillte records. Whilst Barranisky is spelt thus on OS six inch maps, note that Hall Nevil...

Westaston Hill: The top?

I think the highest point is likely about 175 metres in a WSW direction from the mast. I'm judging this from aerial photography and DTM which shows a rocky outcrop in a small forest clearing. DTM ...
