Day 2 of the visit of the Database of British & Irish Hills survey team to Ireland.
Todays prime target was Tomaneena (Turlough Hill) which is interesting from a surveying point of view as the highest point is a man-made structure, a resevoir which is inaccessible.
We (that is ... Jackill & Mcrtchly) took the opportunity to survey Fair Mountain and Camaderry Mtn East Top. Both of these hills have previously had their inclusion (or exclusion) in MVs lists based on map analysis rather than survey data, so once the data is crunched we will have more accurate data for Fair Mtn, and data which might possibly justify the inclusion of Camaderry Mtn East Top. The East Top (sh 677 on OS) has a more substantial cairn than Camaderry itself and feels sufficiently separate to the main top to merit its inclusion. However, I am told that 'feels' is not a surveying term.

Note: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 3h 44m + time stopped for breaks
Note: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
