charity cycle/climb
Hi
There is a group of us trying to put together a charity cycle/climb. Where we cycle through the 4 provinces of the island and climb the four highest peaks in each province. Mweelra (Connaught), Carauntoohill (Munster), Lugnaquilla (Leinster), Slieve Donard (Ulster). We have never been to any of these mountain ranges except Donard. We where looking more info on these climbs ie length of time to climb each mountain, best route/starting point, accomodation close by, and any other information you may think relative.
We plan to do this next july time as you can imagine we will need as much daylight as possible as we intend hopefully to cycle in morning to the mountain from some accommodation near by and away to accommodation further down our planned route. This will take alot of logistics as we hope to do it in as short a time as possible so if any one has any suggestions please forward them on.
Also anyone who would be willing to guide us on the days of the climbs or know anyone who would be willing.
I know this seems along way of but we want to have an idea of what is involved before anything is set in stone.
Many of you will b.. by Onzy   (Show all posts)

Aidy less than an hour ago.
Climbed on the way to the Urris HIlls from Mamore Gap, and like all the hills on both sides of the gap, I was captivated by the rugged terrain and the amazing views. All these hills have the feel ...

Since starting my hillwalking in 2015 I have been up Lug a number of times. Mostly it has been totally misted over by the time I reach or just after reaching the summit. Once it mists over the mou...

Tonelagee NE Top: Barely recognisable as a separate top
Colin Murphy a day ago.
This is a handy one to bag on the way to Tonelagee, but it is so nondescript that many a walker has by-passed it without realising it is a top in itself. The summit is a broad, grassy area with no...

Tonelagee: The perfect beginner's mountain
Colin Murphy a day ago.
Besides crossing Glenmacnass River at the start and end, (which has seen many an unfortunate walker ascend in soggy boots) Tonelagee is a pleasant and relatively easy climb from the carpark near t...
