Trip to the Blaskets - 8th September?
Not arranged yet, but just throwing it out there.

Rang the proposed boat owner, and he checked tides and reckoned Saturday the 8th September is a good bet. The following weekend it will be trickier to land on one or two of them.

Left a message with Sean Haughey, as obviously their permission will be needed to land on their island. Not sure how to contact Conor or Ciarán, so anyone with any link to them might give me a pointer.

Boat owner again pointed out that Tearaght is really kinda off limits unless we get the permission of Irish Lights. Again, if anyone has a useful contact or link...

AND FINALLY, HE AGAIN WARNED THAT EVERYONE WHO GOES SHOULD BE FIT, HEALTHY AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEMSELVES. He will cover us when on the boat, but once anyone takes a step off onto the island, they are responsible for themselves and their own health and safety. I am not sure if insurance with MI will be necessary, I guess it's something that might be considered, or at the very least there will be a disclaimer to be signed and well in advance of the day - perhaps email information can be exchanged. Clearly, people will appreciate that neither I nor the people of Mountainviews.ie have ever been on the islands and have no knowledge of them nor is anyone holding themselves out as a guide or having any expertise or skill in that area. I am merely arranging a boat that will head out to the various Blaskets, anyone who decides to take up the spin does so entirely at their own risk, and once they step off the boat they are liable for their own safety.

Curracahill is the 633rd highest spot in Ireland. It would be about 633rd on my list of good walks.

A pleasant and easy stroll from the lay-by on the Allen-Miltown road as referenced by Dessie1. Frustratingly a spacious car parking area at this spot is padlocked, meaning visitors must park in a ...
