Has the summer arrived?
This week sees the sun breaking out and the early indication is that the good weather should extend into the weekend. While it may be too hazy for long distance views, it will be a great opportunity to get out and walk in areas that are usually wet and boggy as the warm weather should dry things up a bit! It also means that there should be a spurt in vegetation growth which will be challenging on lower slopes. In fields all around the land the bright Rapeseed (Brassica napus) crops are providing vivid and colourful backdrops or foregrounds for photos.

My photo is of the Rock of Dunamase near Portlaoise and was taken on Sunday last. Letís make the most of the good weather and hopefully we see lots of great reports of hillwalking after the weekend

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 ...

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

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.
