Boots and crampons
In answer to Conor74's question about Meindl island Pro - from what I can see on the Meindl website these boots are classed for demanding trekking and high mountain paths but not for mountaineering. Looking at the photos of the boot they don't appear to have heel welt suitable for crampons. I would also expect that the boots are too flexible for crampons and it is likely that using crampons with these boots will break the crampons. Grivel G12 crampons are semi-rigid (C2) crampons and for these you need a B2 or B3 boot. We use Scarpa Manta boots in winter (and for high mountains) with Grivel Airtech crampons (which are similar to the G12's). The Manta is a good 4 season boot but is not insulated (and does not have a Goretex lining). We have used Manta boots down to -25C (for a short time) but for long duration cold temperatures you will need insulated boots or even double boots if very cold.

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.
