Blasket details...time...pier etc.
Got email from boat owner to confirm that departure tomorrow will be at 8am from Ventry Pier.

The list has fluctuated slightly, right now its at 20 confirmed which is the number requested by the boat owner, if 1 or 2 drop out during the day I will make those spaces available on a first come first served basis (as in I already have a replacements list and will go to that).

Anyway, with the fluctuation, I will be asking each to pay 55. Hope this is in order. You might please try to have it to hand please, don't fancy fiddling with change on a pierside.

And people will be signing off on the disclaimer already put up here. I prefer to err on the "is he paranoid" side!

Again sorry to come across all teacherly. I'm not like this at all usually. Just want everything to go smoothly and no hitches to delay matters and eat into island time.

Here is some easy reading - hopefully we'll pass the Cathedral Rocks, they look spectacular.

Foardal: Beyond a shadow of a doubt
Colin Murphy a week ago.
The French writer Maupassant used to say he had lunch in the Eiffel Tower every day because it was the only place in Paris that he couldn't see the thing. A similar view might be taken of Foardal,...

Summit Summary
Foardal: Simple approach from NW
Collaborative entry Last edit by: Colin Murphy a week ago.
If you want to do this in isolation, the simplest route is from the car park at V882790, and then heading SE directly up the heathery slope for 1km. The summit itself is a broad heathery mound.

Collaborative entry Last edit by: Colin Murphy a week ago.
There are access issues around Moll's Gap, so suggest starting at car park at V882790 and proceeding up the heathery slopes to Foardal - about 1km to the SE, before walking the 1.5km to the SW to ...
