Had the pleasure of accompanying Wicklore last Monday. My second time in the Comeragh's, although the first time I got to see what they looked like! What seemed like an almost endless bog trot, the day was filled with some interesting features which made the day worthwhile. The photo shows the bog waterfalls that Wicklore mentions - water streaming off the peat hags and making an incredible sound on the small pools at their base. The clouds sifting out from the corries were fantastic also. The comeraghs are like a version of Wicklow on diet pills and steriods - smaller, yet remoter (or certainly seem less frequented), with vaster plateau's, more Corries (bigger and steeper ones at that). I think I'd swap my neighbouring mountains if I could! The comeragh's also seem like a range where the normal conventions of route-planning don't suffice. Perhaps a hybrid route with corrie scrambling at either end could make a trip in these hills like nowhere else in the country. I will look forward to returning to try a circuit of Coumshingaun.
