Mea Culpa
I'd like to apologise to the Sheefries, they've given me a lot of fun over the years. It's just I've only ever gone up them because they're there, not from that seductive feeling when you reach a summit and see further hills and know you've got to get there. The Sheefries have just been convenient but I'd still recommend them. P D Tempan says the hills have lost their names because they've lost their people. Ireland has always seemed heavily populated to me and I remember people saving the hay in the 60s fairly far up the glen from Durlass on the North side of the hills. There's still a working farm where the back road splits off at Doo Lough - maybe we should just go and ask.

Mountain names are fascinating. I'm still looking to meet PD's challenge to find a Carraun in Scotland. And here we have the usual mixture of the beautiful, Eididh nan Clach Geala - the web of the white stones, the bland, three principal summits in Glen Roy are all called Carn Dearg, and the disgusting, Braigh Coire Chruinn-bhalgain - the upland of the corrie of the little round blisters.

Mweelrea: Brilliant Mountain, But Demands Respect

I found Mweelrea to be a magnificent mountain, dramatic, rugged, and with amazing views. I would definitely recommend ascending from the Doo Lough side to take in the Ben Lugmore tops and Ben Bury...

Topped Mountain: Short & simple

A simple little Binnion 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 yo...

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.
