Dangerous bog conditions
I received this interesting email from a MountainViews member, advising of dangerous bog conditions in Turlough Hill in Wicklow. With all this rain the peril posed by deep bog increases. Be warned!

Hello,

Yesterday we finished our circular walk at Turlough Hill. We had started at Turlough Hill and gone over to Lugduff, then out as far as Conavalla, over to Lough Firib and back to Turlough Hill. The peat hags around Turlough Hill have become saturated because of the rain and softened due to activity. Two of us went down about 3 feet into the bog and had difficulty getting out. I had major difficulty getting out. In fact it took two to pull me out. If I was on my own I would have had a problem. It is very dangerous. I think it is worthy of a notice particularly with all the inexperienced people heading to the hills without a care in the world. Perhaps the Mountain Meathail people would do this.

Many thanks,

Terence Liston

Might be worth adding that Ballymoyle Hill might be more appropriate name for this height. Called that in Coillte records. Whilst Barranisky is spelt thus on OS six inch maps, note that Hall Nevil...

I think the highest point is likely about 175 metres in a WSW direction from the mast. I'm judging this from aerial photography and DTM which shows a rocky outcrop in a small forest clearing. DTM ...
