Dessie d. Hare, C'pan has none
Oh Christmas! me legs are bollixed, me liver is banjaxed, me throat is a horse.

It must have been a good night,(well apart from Derry259 and Wicklores singing).
The day itself was in the finest Scav tradition of a group of friendless meeting in a car park somewhere to walk up some hills followed by lots of craic(ed?).
For some reason at the col to Table Wicklore pointed to a few "extra summits " and said "seek"
(jaysus I know when I'm not wanted)
It was here I had my first introduction to dHare whose flying heels dbloke and I were to follow for the rest of the day untl we caught the main group on the zig-zags.
Apologies to Kernow and Crotchety(damn my spelling;-) whom we unintentionally lost to the main group, that meant they had to endure tales of murder(say it for us again Cra) and slaughter of their compatriots.
Dinner was to say the least entertaining sitting as I was with Bleck cra, Vertigo, Simon3, dbloke, and osullivanm surrounding me all the while being hilariously interrupted by the antics of the wicklore youff wing of the table.
All in all lads my wounds are small and I will carry them gladly, thanks Brenno and Wicklore for the day and night (Brenno is now an Honoury Corkman and has recieved the string to the city and a first class All-Ireland ticket).

Where to next? Back to the kingdom?

And C'pan I'll save a lock for you.

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...
