The results! (Expand pics)
Two Arderins and one Vandeleur Lynam found.
I guess it was only a matter of time. In the course of the past 18 months the MV survey team has checked nearly 80 summits for position, height and prominence using a Differential GPS unit.

So it was on the 9th of June we found ourselves doing a circuit in the Rabachs Glen in Kerry which contains 6 MV listed summits.
Our route dictated that we ascend first to Knocknaveacal a summit close to Coomacloghane.
Knocknaveacal is marked on OS mapping as 513 meters, as is a point to the south of it.
It seemed from the contours that both these might have sufficient prominence to join the Arderin list.
Coomacloghane itself at 599 meters was very close to being a Vandaleur Lynam.

The results reveal 2 new Arderins and a promotion to the Vandaleur lynam list.

We will be adding these summits to the site in due course on a provisional basis subject to a revisit to confirm their inclusion.

Many thanks to Conor74 who I think was the first to suggest we check these points back in 2010.

Note: the accuracy of the unit is 100mm, therefore we round off the prominence reading for Knocknaveacal south to 30 meters.

Westaston Hill: The top?
Barry 2 days ago.
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 ...

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...
