OpenStreetmap
Here's a suggestion/request for all GPS users out there! OpenStreetmap is to atlases what Wikipedia is to encyclopedias: a free open source map of the world. Much of Ireland is already covered, but the sort of areas where MV contributors are likely to be most, somewhere near the middle of nowhere, don't have such good coverage. I think it would be great if MV users could have a look at the coverage in the areas near to their next planned route, and set your GPS to log your tracks as you drive over roads that aren't yet covered by OSM. You can then upload the tracks in GPX format and either edit the map yourself, or let others edit using your tracks. More info on how to get started is at http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Main_Page and the map itself is at http://www.openstreetmap.org. Get mapping -- who knows, if we get the map to a high enough level of detail, Simon might be able to use it on MV instead of the OS maps!

Crockmulroney: Good summit for Carn-baggers
Colin Murphy a week ago.
A fine hill with a well defined summit and great views. Plenty of parking spots along the R254 directly to the south of the summit. From there it's a relatively simple 1km climb to the top.
