For the Diary
Cupla dates for your diary, if you please.

Saturday August 6th – Mourne Mountains 7X7s Challenge Walk.
For the fit and/or not fainthearted – but not exclusively - check out Spartan Red Sox walking club site and see 7x7s Finishers 2010 – mostly every walker I know would do it in under 12 hours, many in under 10. So give it a go. Big challenge and big achievement.
Defos from the mviews site, Jackill, myself and prob Msmurty – also some other takers may be there. They may identify themselves after this post.
It is a 7am to 9am start at Donard car park Newcastle – ie not before and not after. I think I will be on the hill about 7.30/8am but may be there from before 7am to get a parking space. So any other mviewers going, look out for us around registration – same deal afterwards. I am not looking for a PB, just a jaunt so anyone thinking finishing 9.30-10.30hours, tag along.

Saturday August 27th – “Scavenger” Walk 7 – Mourne Mountains.
A stay over event with Grade 2/1 Walk Saturday from Carricklittle car park beneath south of Annalong Valley – SE Slieve Binnian.
Horseshoe route taking in much of beautiful Annalong Valley.
Meal and pubs afterwards.
You need to book accomm soon.
Regular successful event. Very social – very easy-going.

Inishmeane: Not much to do, a tranquil place.

Visited in 2014. There's a sandy beach and a solid pier with slipway and a picnic table facing the mainland. The road from the pier all the way thru the village is a robust concrete one, but it's ...

Now living furth of Scotland and getting to know the Irish hills. If you come across a Scottish hill Walker with dodgy knees and walking sedately, stop and say hello.

Inishsirrer: The only building that is not a ruin.

Surprisingly Donegal islands have a very good mobile internet reception, sometimes better than in an office in Dublin.

I did kayak to the island in 2014. There is a slipway facing the mainland. Lot's of ruined houses. Walking is decent as the island is flat but in places ground is uneven and overgrown, there are o...

Decided to make a day out of a Dublin-Waterford drive, despite low-hanging cloud. Knockroe wore a misty white cap as I glanced up from the Sculloge Gap carpark. Planning my attack (so I thought), ...
