Looking for information
I live in the US and in 2003 I was in Galway and heard of a yearly climb in July (somewhere I think within an hour or two of Galway). I saw a bit of video from the climb and it was a very rocky climb. At the top, I believe there was a building where either Mass was being said or confessions were being heard. Also, it was newsworthy in 2003 as an elderly woman apparently climbs this mountain every year - in her bare feet. Can anyone please tell me the name of this mountain or the name of this climb? Many thanks...
