Proposal for a coastal walk.
A proposal that has been made on another website recently by "Kate" that members may be interested in. For reference MV does include a few peaks which would be included in a coastal path and has considered extending the information we provide to more of them.

Claim your coastline - and Go Green Road.....
Hi Hikers,

I've been trging to get the idea of a Green Road off the ground for 3 years - and finally decided to enter it into the www.yourcountryyourcall.ie competition. The idea is to develop a hiking trail around th eentire coastline of the island of ireland. You'll find it under D1977 (posteed by juno) on the site.

I'm writing to tell the hikersof Ireland about this idea in the hope they may like to support it. I havea much mor detailed proposal in the attachment for the adjudicators - it's well thought out in terms of distances, staged accomodation and connection to existing inlnad walking routes.

So if you like the idea of being able to hike in stages around entire coastline of the island of Ireland, go to the above website, searchfor D1977 - and click 'the thumbs up' symbol. You'll have to login first.

Your support won't make the idea the winner - but it will be a genuine expression of a genuine demand for such a project.

Thank you in advance - and please circulate this to all you think would like this coastal walking route.

Look forward to seeing ye all walking - Kate

Topped Mountain: Short & simple

A simple little Minion to climb (the name Topped 'Mountain' is a bit of a stretch). A gravel path & steps from a carpark will see you reach the top in about 15 minutes, and you won't even need you...

Crockmulroney: Good summit for Carn-baggers
Colin Murphy 3 days 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.
