New Guidebooks
You know what they say about buses. You wait for ages then 5 arrive together. Collins Press are doing something similar with guidebooks. They have 5 new volumes due to be published in the next couple of months. Plenty to give even the most dedicated armchair rambIer itchy feet.
I am particularly looking forward to John Gerard O'Dwyer's new guidebook on Tipperary and Waterford. I have known John for about 10 years. He is a member of the Mid Tipperary Hillwalkers. John has extensive hillwalking and climbing experience in Ireland, Scotland and Europe. John's well written descriptions of hill walking routes appear in the Saturday edition of the Irish Times about once a month. I suspect the new guidebook will include some of this material.
Kieron Gribbon has written a guidebook to the County Tops.
Adrian Hendroff has another book on its way. This one features Sligo. Leitrim and Donegal. Helen Fairbairn has a new guidebook dealing with Northern Ireland. And finally Jim Ryan, who wrote an excellent guide to the Reeks a few years ago has another new book on the way featuring walks in the Killarney area.
More details on the Collins Press website.
So many walks, so little time.
