TRY THE GYES HERE
Alex 92, pleased you are drinking and pursuing women. As independent endeavours they are both worthy. Just a word of caution though: be careful not to mix the two or the girning you refer to later in your post will be but a drop in the bucket. “Dad, are we there yet?”
Here are a couple of suggestions for venues to engage in both. First up, just stay away from all the usual haunts: Ice House on the Glen River; Commedagh Wood; head of the Annalong Wood; Trassey foot of Meelmore. Issue here is these are too easily accessed by the scummies. So you are in a cleft stick: you want easy access but no scum buckets.
Try the following: a few minutes into Commedagh via the fire chute and stile West of the Glen River – over the first main rise find a grassy stretch with fab views down to Newcastle. Or a few mins up the track from Silent Valley Road to above the Buttresses beneath Pigeon Rock – level with good views of the tops to Binnian. Or beneath Chimneyrock from the Midpace burn, crossing and ascending at the first opportunity after a new stile and fence – ie avoid ascending before this or Farmer Giles will chastise you – wonderful views out to sea. A good start for girners. Let us know what you think.

Truskmore: The Height of Sligo

The Dartry Mountains are among the most distinctive in Ireland, so it's unfortunate that their highest hill is one of the least distinctive in the range. Once one gets away from the signature stee...
