New islands and summits
Very excited about all these new summits. Having been looking around the map a lot, a few highlights come to mind.

- Inishark, beside Inishbofin, off Connemara. The island was abandoned in 1960 and anybody who has looked across to it while walking the coast of Bofin will have seen the abandoned village. Bofin itself has some brilliant coastal walks, while some artists actually constructed a bothy on Inishark last year as part of the very interesting 4 Bothies project: http://4bothies.com/?p=128. Perhaps Shark combined with neighbouring Inishturk and Clare Island could form a future island peak-bagging excursion?

- Knockanes hill in the Burren. This is I reckon the finest spot in the Burren, but no hills in the area had been on MV previously. For those who haven't been up Knockanes (and I actually haven't been to the summit myself yet) and its glorious neighbour Mullaghmore, you have a treat in store.

- On Achill, Cornaclea Hill looks over the stupendous Lough Nakerooge and will probably have already been visited by anyone traversing from Slievemore to Croaghaun. Another new summit, the Benmore Cliff above the Keem Valley, is equally grand.

- The Donegal Sea Stacks, Gull Island and Tormore. I've seen the latter from the coast but not the former. I think Iain Miller's company Unique Ascents offers guided sea stack climbing in the area.

- Newtown Hill in South Connemara, which seems to be the closest hill to Galway City. My formative introduction to the Irish landscape was cycling and walking the rather unloved boglands between Galway City and Connemara, so it's great to see a couple of summits in this area added now, though I have to confess I've yet to walk up any of them. Hoping to cycle out here soon to correct that.
