See the Sights
Yes V-sign: bullseye within a bullseye - spare us from these poltroons with the placentae pinned to their backs. Water! Sure at the first sign of drouthiness, a real man slashes his wrists and drinks his own blood. Let’s exterminate them all - along with might I suggest: walking-pole bearers and what’s with the 1 pole - why not cut off 1 leg and save on trouser material too; men with earrings and sunglasses although men with 1 earring and 1 sunglass should be spared; everyone who says “Good Morning” when they mean “how ya going?” or “what about ye?”; women over 40 with their hair in bunches; anyone who ignores you when you say “how ya going?”; fell runners; mountain bikers; Englishmen; fathers with veins standing out on their necks while their lone child tramps happily and comfortably behind; people who speak while ascending the south side of Commedagh; any two people of the same age holding hands; young fat blokes carrying a bottle of water; campers; anyone who says Chamonix, Dordogne, St Trop or Ben Nevis; people who complain about the weather; Englishmen - you can’t do away with enough of them; people wearing skip caps; unless they arrive by private helicopter, anybody wearing anything to do with the Southern hemisphere; anyone wearing a rugby shirt - don’t worry, they’re only social members; the same goes for anti-vivisection slogans - the real ones live in caves. Contrarily, embrace everyone in boil-washed grey; kiss everyone with boots older than you - regardless of their sexual orientation; nuzzle up to anyone who uses the “f” word to describe Englishmen; and anyone who sits like an aborigine and stares across the glen and makes a noise like a warm pig, scoop them up, buy a barge and breed hundreds more grunters.

Sugarloaf Hill: Easy access and log book to sign
ilenia a day ago.
Sugarloaf Hill is usually climbed from Bay Lough Car Park, S03056 09981, ample parking there. Cross the road and follow the wall and the eroded path all the way up, it's steep enough but you'll re...

Slieveboy: Default hill
scannerman a day ago.
I've forgotten how many times I've gone up this hill, must be over 50. I live relatively close so its the easy option when larger 'expeditions' are a non starter. It has a very decent balcony walk...

Maulin: Misty morning
simon3 2 days ago.
Just sometimes and just for a short while a damp forest can show a misty fairy side. And so it was one January day after a heavy raincloud had passed and the sun had magicked this sprite into the ...

The famous side of Slieve Beg is the NE, gashed by the Devils Coachroad. However the SE side also has its drama.Taken on a frosty slippy day from Cove.

Dromderalough NE Top: Odd-looking formations
Colin Murphy 4 days ago.
On my approach to the summit I came across a large field of hundreds of these rather striking formations, which I think are are moss-covered boulders, but which looked like giant green ant-hills o...

Colin Murphy 4 days ago.
My final Vandeleur-Lynam! Unfortunately No. 273 wasn't the most distinctive summit (when I came off Mangerton I couldn't even pick it out on the landscape) , but the views from the top are tremend...

  
Summit Summary
Dromderalough NE Top: Long route from the south.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: Colin Murphy 4 days ago.
Not normally done in isolation, this top usually forms part of a walk involving Dromderalough itself or Mangerton. One approach is from the north, which has the advantage of a gently rising track ...
