Hills on Speed's maps
Can anybody offer an identification for the following hills or any relevant
information on them? They are all names taken from John Speed's maps of the
provinces of Ireland, drawn up in 1610. Unfortunately I don't know of any
site where Speed's Irish maps can be viewed online, but they are published
in 'The Counties of Britain - A Tudor Atlas by John Speed' and parts of
them are reproduced in 'Historical Maps of Ireland' by Michael Swift.

1) Haukes rocke (map of Ulster, located in NW Donegal - may just be a locally significant rock. Anyone know of a Carraig an tSeabhaic or the like?)

2) Anna Hill (Leinster, seemingly in the Dublin Mountains)

3) Slepehill (Leinster, NE part of Queen's County (Laois), nr Kildare border)

4) Slew Malora (Munster, N Cork, maybe the former name for Nagle's Mountains
or a specific peak in this range, but I've no idea what the 2nd element is,
suggestions welcome)

5) Slew Welnan (Connaught, N Mayo, nr "Rafraine" (poss. Rathfran townland),
but the 40 miles or so of coast between Erris and Killala Bay is made to
look like about 5 miles, so could be anywhere along N Mayo coast).

Many Thanks,

Paul

Foardal: Beyond a shadow of a doubt
Colin Murphy a week ago.
The French writer Maupassant used to say he had lunch in the Eiffel Tower every day because it was the only place in Paris that he couldn't see the thing. A similar view might be taken of Foardal,...

Foardal: Simple approach from NW
Collaborative entry Last edit by: Colin Murphy a week ago.
If you want to do this in isolation, the simplest route is from the car park at V882790, and then heading SE directly up the heathery slope for 1km. The summit itself is a broad heathery mound.

Derrygarriff: Fine summit, easily reached.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: Colin Murphy a week ago.
There are access issues around Moll's Gap, so suggest starting at car park at V882790 and proceeding up the heathery slopes to Foardal - about 1km to the SE, before walking the 1.5km to the SW to ...
