Mweelrea tragedy
Link below is to Mountain Rescue Ireland report on the rescue effort on Mweelrea over the weekend. Tragically it turned into a recovery exercise as the person concerned died apparently after a fall in the Ramp section of the mountain. I'm sure sympathies of all of us who go out on the hills go to his family. This was one of the biggest MR efforts in years - about 70 MR people from all over the island and UK, plus search dogs, search and rescue helicopters and a huge support effort from local people and businesses. Well done to all involved - only a pity that the outcome was so tragic

Robber's Pass Hill: Minor heathery lump. Overcivilised and underwhelming.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: simon3 a week ago.
This oddly named hill is more a very minor heathery bump incorporated into the system of tracks laid out by the Wicklow Mountains National Park. It can be reached from any of the western car-parks...
