Carrickgollogan
Hi andodenis (original comment in Site Feedback forum),

I don't have the relevant OSI map to hand, but from looking at online resources Carrickgollogan doesn't have enough prominence to qualify...for hills below 400m in height they have to currently possess 150m of prominence to get into the MV lists; soon this criteria will drop to 100m, but I suspect it still won't get in.

There have been discussions on MV before about including hills lacking the prescribed prominence but otherwise of 'special interest'; Tara is generally cited as the best example of this. Perhaps there's something exceptional about Carrickgollogan that would make it worthy of inclusion?

All the best,
Peter

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.
