Raising funds for an African School.

We are inviting teams of people to help raise funds for this African school project, we are running the first XL CHALLENGE which will involve climbing Ireland’s four highest mountains, from Friday 27th April to Sunday 29th April 2012.
The challenge involves climbing Brandon Mountain Friday afternoon, Carrauntoohil on Saturday, Galteemore on Sunday morning, and Lugnaquilla Sunday afternoon.

This will be an exciting team building challenge with the possibility of great rewards in personal achievement in supporting the building of this Tanzanian school. With this school building the Maasai children will be afforded the opportunity to be educated at a Christian school. The Maasai people of Monduli want this school and have raised some, funds from their own people to get work started. Now with the money raised from this present appeal the school will become a working reality.

Knockardakin: Bag it as part of the cliff walk
TommyV 3 days ago.
I technically haven't bagged the summit of this hill as it wasn't listed on MV when I did the Ciiffs of Moher walk, but it would be a very small detour to bag it. I was no more than 50 meters from...

Cooneen Hill: Very average
TommyV 3 weeks ago.
Nothing to add to simon3's directions. Like quite a few of the hills in North Tipperary, this one is through a Coilte forest track to begin with and then the tough push through some horrible groun...
