Climbing Lugnaquillia
There is a gentleman who goes under the name "distancefading" who has uploaded a good number of videos on YouTube. Many of these relate to an alarming sport where folks wave giant fishing rods about for no good reason that I can fathom. But this film maker has lately turned his talents to mountain movies and he has a gift- I am sure of that. His most recent piece captures something of the very heart of Lugnaquillia. The lighting (thank you God!) is stunning. He has learned the art of holding the camera steady. The composition indicates that he either spends months on each movie or else has an intuitive grasp of what works. Closely observed details are Oscaresque. No I am not his agent!! Please take the time to look at this short film and judge for yourself.

Topped Mountain: Short & simple
Colin Murphy 6 days ago.
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 6 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.
