My Garmin handheld GPS uses the Topo UK and Ireland v6. I see that v8 is now available on the garmin website.
Does anyone know if there is much difference between the versions?

Irish Mountain Gathering 2020
About this time of year we begin to collate our awards list - this is the list of those who have completed various MV mountain lists who we present with their awards at the Gathering.

We individually email those who we think are eligible, asking that they confirm their completion and attendance at the event. However, it's not impossible that we may miss someone. Also, if you have not yet completed a list, but are so close that you might complete before the event, we will not pick you up in the normal way. So, if you think you qualify for a particular award, please let me know by messaging me here on the site, or directly to davidowens1513@gmail.com

See you at the event which promises to be a pretty good show ... see flyer attached...

New book from John G O'Dwyer
If you are looking for a gift for a hillwalker, or just a good read, can I recommend the recently published 'Wild Stories from the Irish Uplands' by John G O'Dwyer. This well written book covers a wide span of Irish history all with a strong mountaineering flavor. Saints, outlaws and rebels all feature in the book as well as Kerry Mountain Rescue. This is not a guidebook but there is plenty to interest any hillwalker.
