The High and the Low of Ireland in a day Tara
The High and the Low of Ireland in a day Tara-untoohil style

On Friday night of the October Bank Holiday weekend 2012 a group of intrepid Tara Mines workers undertook a unique challenge.
The aim was to walk from the lowest point to the highest point on the island of Ireland..
The starting point for this adventure was at 920 metres below sea level, know as 0625 Dublin Bay which is the deepest part of the Tara Mines lead and zinc mine located in Navan Co. Meath.
The adventurers set off at 7.30pm in conditions that are quite different from a 'normal' Irish ascent i.e. diesel fumes, no wind, no rain and hot!. Covering a distance of approx 10 km along underground tunnels the surface which is at 50 metres above sea level was reached in a little under 3 1/2 hours making a total ascent of 970 metres.
After a shower and a quick bite to eat it was on to the bus and a drive through the night to Co. Kerry.
At 9am on Saturday morning the walkers set off in near perfect conditions for a straight forward ascent of Carrauntoohil reaching the summit at 1039 metres in 3 1/2 hours.
The purpose of the challenge was to raise funds for Temple Street children's hospital

Cnoc na Sleá: Not To Be Judged On Size
Aidy 5 days ago.
A small hill, but as it can form part of an extended walk, has some very steep sides, and has some of the best views in the country, it cannot be judged by size alone. I started at the car park at...
