Bushfires in Dublin/ Wicklow July 2018
To answer your question, you are good to go. Happened to drive the length of the Military Road last Sunday. As of that time all the fires were north of the Sally Gap. I am not aware there having been any further fires this week.

By coincidence, I have also been rereading Moire OSullivan's "Mud Sweat and Tears" book about the Wicklow Round this week. It outlines a route from the Sally Gap to Drumgoff. Not the best route from one place to the other IMHO, but worth looking at!

Bushfires in Dublin/ Wicklow July 2018
Hi,
Does anyone know, or suggest where I might find out, the extent of the recent bushfires in Dublin/ Wicklow? Planning a walk from the Sally Gap to Glenmalure over the next few days.
Cheers.

Maumtrasna Southern approach
I am planning joining Glennagleragh Mountain with Devilsmother South Top, approaching from the south somewhere around L948602. The Benwee spur looks ideal for ascent but it is clearly quite steep, perhaps a little steeper than the Leynabrick spur which I have ascended before.

Has anyone been up the Benwee spur? Any info gratefully received...

The Dingle Way
Tom Barragry, Nick O Neill, and Aidan Cruise coming around Slea Head at evening time, with the Blaskets just coming into view. A beautiful vista not to be forgotten.!
Having set out from Dingle ,along the Dingle way, it was a good stretch along the coastal path, through Ventry, the famine cottages, under Eagle Mountain ,and on finally to Dunquin.

While not very challenging, recent felling means the views along the way and from the summit are pleasant enough. A nice spot for a lunchtime walk.
