Irish Mountain Log
I have contributed a number of articles and book reviews to this magazine. These have all been on hillwalking topics. I have found the editor, Patrick O'Sullivan, very receptive to such articles which were all published, though I agreed to amend one or two of them at Patricks suggestion.

Articles usually need to be tailored to suit a particular magazine or newspaper. For example, an article may need to be shortened or more emphasis given to what interests the potential reader rather than what the author wants to write about. As it is published in colour the IML generally requires decent quality photographs to accompany any article.
I don't see any real distinction between hill walkers and mountaineers. When I climb the Devil's Bit I'm a hillwalker, when I climb Beenkeeragh I'm a mountaineer even though I walk up the mountain rather than use a rope etc.

Maumtrasna North-East Top: Small top, big drop.
simon3 3 days ago.
The summit is truly a bump on the spur to the north of Lough Dirkbeg. From Buckaun you can get an idea of the approx 250m cliff beside the summit down towards the lough.
