Twice as many people have logged Purple and Tomies as climbed than Shehy. Most probably because like me they couldn't be arsed to make the detour at the time. Which left me having to bag it separately. I decided to follow salee's 'Tomies Purple and Shehy starting at Lake' as described in the Walk section, but was quickly stopped in my tracks. Turning right on the Tomies Wood track at V900 892 C now brings you face to face with 20ft high wall of gorse bush. As I'd left my machete at home I decided to continue and try to find a way through the woods further along. In the end I ended up doing the walk clockwise. You get to see Shehy's better side from this direction, and the view of all of Killarney's lakes is unobstructed from the 571 high point. Also I wouldn't fancy sliding down the steep heathery slope from there. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/68/comment/3845/
