Typos or variations
A welcome comment came in recently from Loz about typos on the site, pointing out that the Wicklow peak named Clohernagh is incorrectly spelt "Cloghernagh" on the site. Thanks Laurence for spotting this. The site will be updated in due course. If anybody notices any other errors, please let MV know through this space.

On a related subject, it would also be interesting to know about OS typos, of which there are a few which are relevant to hill-walkers. I am aware of the following: Teeromoyle Mountain (Kerry) spelt "Teermoyle"; Coomcathcun (Kerry) marked "Coomeathcun"; Maumought (Galway)spelt "Maumonght"; Bengower (Galway) marked "Glengower"! Croaghonagh (Donegal) marked "Barnesmore"!

My comments about Maumought is supposition on the basis that "Maumonght" is unpronouncable and "Maumought" is the most likely solution. It would be nice if someone with local knowledge could confirm or deny this. I have asked around the Irish place-name forum without success.

I also suspect that Knockpasheemore (12 Bens, Galway) may be an error, perhaps for Knockasheemore or Knocknasheemore, and that Carnaween (Bluestacks, Donegal) may be an error for Carnaneen as Seoirse ” Dochartaigh has Carn an …in as the Irsh for this. Again, any local or linguistic knowledge welcomed and if you spot map other typos, please let us know. Thanks, Paul

Slieveboy: Default hill

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...

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...

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 majicked this sprite into the ...

Slieve Beg: Southern plunge

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.

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...

Dromderalough NE Top: Long route from the south.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: Colin Murphy 3 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 ...
