Looking for Information
Simon3, thank you so much for clearing this mystery up for me. This question has been itching at me and now I finally know. I hope to come back to Galway in March '07 and maybe then I could take a shot at climbing Croagh Patrick. I checked out the entries for the mountain and even more so now would like to make the climb. I'm sure March is not the best of months to make a climb, but I'd guess it would not be too crowded either ! I can rest easy now knowing the challenge ahead. A least now I know where it is !

Thanks again...by the way...in Pennsylvania where I live in the States, we have some nice places to climb, but not with the traditions I've read about in Ireland. All the best...Roark....
