Mountain Rescue getting organised in Wicklow
One of the two mountain rescue teams in Wicklow, Glen of Imaal Mountain Rescue Team is setting up a base near Laragh. Earlier this month they held this groundbreaking ceremony at the site which is near the Wicklow Mountains National Park HQ.
In true bottom-up style all were invited to help turn a sod.
They are looking for money and have a scheme to allow you to buy a brick or an aerial or whatever for their building. Do please support them and your local Mountain Rescue.
There's something to learn from the way this group and Mountain Rescue in Ireland in general is organised: great voluntary cooperative with an appropriate level of institutionalised support and no self-supposed National Governing Body with a ton of baggage.

Brougher Mountain: A quick bag.

Nothing much to add to the comments already. Drove most of the way up from the North side of the hill to within 450 metres of the trig point. Nothing to recommend to anybody who is looking to get ...

Geo's directions are spot on. At the aforementioned Coilte forest entrance there is a sign staing no unauthorized vehicles beyond this point as the gate may close at any point. However as the Lazy...

Relatively recent history has liberated Camlough Mountain from the bonds of the military: some metallic paraphernalia remains high on its slopes but if one puts that aside it's a cracking little e...
