Just wanted to share this picture with ye all. It was taken on Sunday January 18th in the Knockmealdown's. Looking from Knocknalougha to Knockshanahullion. You can see a snow storm approaching behind the summit (we got caught in it, lasted for about 20 minutes). There you see, its important to be prepared for every situation. Whoever would expect a full blown blizzard in the irish hills. I was walking with a collegue who has no hillwalking experience and was only reasonably prepared. I felt the responsability resting heavely on my shoulders. Shortly after this incident i bought a kishu, no extravagance in situations like these, and now I insist they are better prepared whenever I take someone along on my walks. A great lesson learned!!!
