The Owenglin Horseshoe
I am wondering if any of you have walked the full Owenglin Horseshoe? I did bits of it as a young lad but which bits I cannot say, as these outings took place at a time when I walked for the sheer hell of it rather than to complete a “List”. The only way for me to approach the Arderins with honour is to complete all “doubtfuls” no matter what duplication or triplication may be involved; thence the Owenglin Circuit. I am currently working my way through the literature and I see many warnings about the need for caution on the descent from Bengower to Benbreen. Ideally I would like to download a TRACK to my GPS (I am currently an upanddownloading virgin) covering the dodgy section. My research led me to fingalcave’s TRACK 1283 described as “Glencoaghan (Almost) Horseshoe”. I have had the pleasure of meeting fingalscave in person atop the Sheefrys and am most impressed by his rapid rise through our Lists. The problem is that he went from Benbreen to Bengower rather than the other way around and he did so in snowy conditions where, presumably, he did not see the actual faded track underfoot. Therefore, I am hoping that some kind soul might upload an anti-clockwise Owenglin Track. Or course my intention is to complete this route in the summer in perfect conditions, but I like to prepare for all eventualities. I await hearing from you.

Topped Mountain: Short & simple

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 5 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.
