Carrauntoohil
As my prose is only in the tupenny hapenny place compared to the Cra I'll keep it brief.
The Cra and myself in our first outing as a couple brought 15 able walkers up Carraun via O'Sheas and returned via the Heavenly gates on April 11th last on a walk under the Mountainviews - WAI banner. We had a small few cancellations but all those who couldn't make it informed me in good time (and in Daves case sent two replacements!).We were at the start point in Lisleibane at 9.30am and walking in the Hags glen by 9.45am. The weather was looking wet but calm and indeed the day afterwards was spent in waterproofs.A good pace was kept , the group climbed steadily enjoying views of the Hags tooth and the Eagles nest and indeed whatever fears Cra and I had about guaging the ability of a large, mixed group were soon proved unfounded. A good humoured and determined bunch of people. After a quick rest stop at the foot of O'Sheas we struck out for the summit and reached it in good time after 3hrs 45 minutes. On the summit we had the pleasure of snow and sleet, the black cra was looking a little white on top a nice contrast to his green gills.Views from the summit were limited to a few foggy glimpses of lake and mountain.We started down through the Gates with views opening down over the Hags Glen and arrived back at the carpark after 6hrs 15 mins.
I certainly enjoyed the day and look forward to another in the near future.
Cra many thanks for travelling all the way from the north pole to lead the walk with me.
And remember our song , all together now " TEN GREEN BOTTLES.........

Lackakeely: An easy bag after Mweelrea
magnumpig a day ago.
Mweelrea is a sweaty old climb (for me anyways) and if, like me, you feel that climbing it deserves bagging more than one peak, you should visit Lackaleely. Basically it's a small rise overlooking...

As mentioned by Bunsen7, the entrance to the windfarm is the best way to access this hill. Note that there are signs saying no unauthorized access but isn't that always the way. I did come across ...

No excuse not to come over here for a peek if you are at Truskmore, so that's what we did and it's worth it for the extra view.
