tsunami: the fact that you enjoyed any of that is testament to your determination. The best way to do any any of these is to kick off from just out of Hilltown at the foot of Hen Mountain: that way you can do a horseshoe without even getting the horse's feet damp - unlike your own experience. The castle and red bogs are famous in these airts and will soak you to your gusset even after 6 months of drought. It is also arguable if Finlieve is ever worth the bother. My one and only recollection of same is that the views across Carlingford are stunning but not stunning enough ever to get me back there. Take my route and be very pleased and congratulations for foregoing the main Mourne thoroughfares. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/217/comment/1040/
