Coastal walks
MV is a fantastic resource for all us walkers - and the extension of the site to peaks below 500 metres is a very welcome development. But here is another suggestion which would expand the site and make it, I believe, even more usefl to walkers.

Because of the altitude cutoff point, MV does not include any coastal walks unless they are like Slieve League where there is a mountain right on the coastline. All of us on our holidays in Ireland have probably walked sections of the coast which don't involve mountain peaks - one example is last summer I took my kids walking along the cliffs on the north coast if Clare Island.
And for another example in in the greater Dublin area we have decent coastal walks like the circuit of Howth Head (full circuit almost 8 miles) and the Bray-Greystones cliff walk. Walking World Ireland magazine also carried coastal routes which involve significant distanxces even if they don't involve a lot of altitute. I'm sure MV members in all the coastal counties would be able to suggest good coastal walks in their own areas - these could maybe included in another link "coastal routes" in the walks section.
Any views

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.

There's a salty tidal lake on the island.

I did kayak to the island in 2014. There is a slipway facing the mainland. Lot's of ruined houses. Walking is decent as the island is flat but in places ground is uneven and overgrown, there are o...

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.
