Maulin Mountain Málainn A name in Irish
(Ir. Málainn [PNCW], possibly 'high or sloping ground') Wicklow County, in Arderin List, Dark blue-grey slate, phyllite & schist Bedrock

Height: 570m OS 1:50k Mapsheet: 56 Grid Reference: O18436 13103 This summit has been logged as climbed by 643 members. Recently by: Oona, Gus, hannukkah, Lauranna, Murray-Tucker, KevinRoche, strangeweaver, Damien25, lw24, clacon, maryt, a_whelan99, tommyclarke, carofurey, Coles

Longitude: -6.230294, Latitude: 53.155537 , Easting: 318436, Northing: 213103 Prominence: 70m,   Isolation: 1.5km
ITM: 718359 713133,   GPS IDs, 6 char: Mau570, 10 char: Maulin 570
Bedrock type: Dark blue-grey slate, phyllite & schist, (Maulin Formation)

Málainn is rare element of obscure origin and meaning, occurring in a handul of place-names scattered throughout the country. For origin of name, see articles by Paul Tempan: The Element Málainn in Place-names in the Kerry Magazine, No. 18, 2008 (15-16) and An Eilimint Málainn i Logainmneacha in the Donegal Annual 2006 (218-19). There are references in early Irish texts to Málu, site of a battle in Leinster. This mountain has been proposed as an identification by Eoin MacNeill (JRSAI lxv, 14), but this is far from certain.   Maulin is the 362nd highest summit in Ireland.

What a brilliant weekend walk. There're Lynam's books, as you know, and this was a nice route. On way the down I passed people of all ages climbing from the WW side (past Powerscourt), but had taken the zig-zag or Raven's Glen side. Some may prefer this over the WW because you get your workout with few people and then have a really beautiful walk down a nice path, finally meeting others along the way.

For that much, the walk description was a little strange for the "junctions." I went straight up from the car park (two sets of paths go through the woods, one after the other, to avoid the road a good bit). At the second junction (path & road), go right to almost immediatley be at a road T-junction. Go left and up, coming soon to another "x" junction. Now this road folds back on itself, goes straight (sort of off road) or down. Go straight and up, in the Raven's Glen direction (this was where it was a bit confusing because the guide says to stay on the road, even though the road proper folds back on itself). Go up and to the next junction to go left, and then immediately right to the climb the zig-zags, across a fence and stile (stop for a good few pics of Raven's Glen) and immediately left back on yourself a bit to contour up to Maulin top (I went straight up once I found the next path and aimed for the stone wall). The wind was fierce enough that when I took a step in the direction of the bluff leading to Tonduff, the wind held me even while leaning at 50 degrees! Ah well, so back down the well marked trail on the WW towards Powerscourt. It really is a very relaxing walk that way. Once in the tree cover, I slid down into the rows of red leaves beside a bluff, turned on the ole jetboil (keeping it out of the leaves of course) and had a well earned soup and tea with a book :D (and nearly a nap!).
