campbellu on Conavalla, 2005

For years now our small group has toyed with the idea of walking from Camaderry to Lug and on a fine Sunday recently 3 of us decided to give it a go. We left a car at baravore with the intention of descending Lug by Art's Lough back down to the Ford. The day started great with 2 hours of good sunshine which saw us at Lough Firrib for our lunch (early). This is when the trouble started, firstly a hail shower and a severe drop in temperature, followed by the immediate discovery that one person had forgotten her jacket(unforgiveable). Rather than go back the way we came we reckoned we'd continue on and instead of going up Lug by Table we'd descend off Conavalla down into baravore. Did someone say it is a "sucking" bog, if they did they should have used a different consonant. We literally sank our way across trying all the time to figure out could we have gone to the Three lakes and found a firmer ground, we laughed till we wet ourselves (though we were already wet enough), it would have made a very good cartoon sequence of hopping ballet dancers up to their knees in mud. We made it down by a break in the forest during serious hail to find at the trail a clear view of Table and lug and the sun re-appearing. We will try again no doubt but what I want to know is is there any way over from Lough Firrib to Table that is not "bog" , we may leave it until Sep/Oct and try again.
