Irish Mountain Gathering 2016 - Save the Date
It’s that time of year again … those intererested in walkingl come together in the Lansdowne Hotel to review the year, present our awards and hear some exciting speakers on a range of hilly topics! As usual we have a great line up of speakers for you; the current line-up looks like this:

- John G. O’Dwyer
is a travel consultant and a teacher of tourism studies. A keen hillwalker and rock climber, he is a founder member of Mid-Tipp Hillwalkers and has twenty-five years’ experience of leading hillwalking and mountain climbing groups in Ireland, the UK, Europe and Africa. He is a regular contributor of travel features to the Irish Times. His Tipperary & Waterford; A Walking Guide has become the classic guide to the region, and his more recent book Pilgrim Paths in Ireland; From Slieve Mish to Skellig Michael was published in 2013. John will speak on Stories from the Irish Landscape. He promises a talk covering places such as “Howling Ridge”, the Knockmealdowns, Cave Hill, Slievenamon and where its name came from, the Comeraghs and William Crotty and the deserted village above Clonmel.

- Mike Maunsell
of Mountain Research Ireland will also be addressing us. Mike is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and has worked for over 35 years in mountain environments as a Mountaineer, Lecturer & Researcher, he was recently nominated to the UIAA (International Climbing and Mountaineering Federation), Mountain Protection Commission. He chairs Mountaineering Ireland’s Access and Conservation Committee. His talk will cover our mountain ecosystems which are fragile and highly sensitive to environmental change. Hill-walkers can play a role in gathering important data on mountain environments through mountain based Citizen Science projects.

- Simon Stewart
needs no introduction. The founder of MV and the man responsible for the continued development of the website and the Community, will give a review of developments during the year. - Any Irish Mountain Gathering would be incomplete without

- Peter Walker
His theme for this year is 15 Things I Have Learned From Hillwalking. It is difficult to predict exactly what he might say, but it will be broadly (only broadly!) in the hillwalking area, and it will be light-hearted, and above all, it will be entertaining!

As has become usual, the night will be ‘MC-ed’ by our own Wicklore, Mark Brennan. This is a once-a-year opportunity to meet your fellow hillwalkers in a relaxed convivial atmosphere - We hope to see you all there. The meeting is open to ALL. Note the details: Lansdowne Hotel, Pembroke Road, Dublin 4 at 8pm, Friday, 19th February 2016. Doors will open from 7.30pm. There will be a small charge (€8) on the door.
