Paddy Dillon challenge - 2 treks in...
Finally started this in the past 2 weekends. The logistics means I can't do it in order, each leg is a 2 car outing so relying on whenever family and friends are heading around the county. Gonna take it in 3 stages going west to east, a traverse of the Mangertons, the eastern end of the Dunkerrons and the central Dunkerrons. On my first day, I went from Molls Gap to Dromderalough across Derrygarriff, Peakeen West, Peakeen, Knockanaguish, Knockbrack and Dromderalough - about 5.5 hours, with no stops, followed by over an hour of hike back out. Took about 90 mins to get back to Dromderalough on the second day, and from there to Dromderalough NE, Mangerton, Stoompa, Stoompa East and Beenaunmore before driving rain, gales and fading light meant Crohane will have to wait for another day. That was about another 6 hours after I got back on the route again, but was relying on a compass for much of it. If anyone plans to try it, waterproofs essential, much boggy ground. And access issues on Derrygarriff mean sticking to the road for the first mile or so leaving Molls Gap advisable. No idea when I'll pick this up again, days aren't getting any longer and relying on drives a lot, but will keep ye posted. Dillon himself was a bit unclear, as some if his walks in the area are circuits which would have one zig zagging all over the place. Just stuck with the highest peaks along the way, and added a few that he skirted like Stoompa East and Beenaunmore. Dillon said it would be a "...great expedition...for the hardiest of mountain walkers..." but won't pat my own back till its done!

The Loop walks here are well signposted, it's a great idea to go out onto each headland.
