MountainViews annual event this Friday 22nd.
This Friday February 22nd 2013, MountainViews and the Walkers Association of Ireland are proud to present our annual talks and awards event - ‘An Irish Mountain Gathering.’ Our special guest is Evelyn Cusack, Deputy Head of Forecasting at Met Éireann, Vice President of the Irish Meteorological Society and RTE weather presenter. Evelyn will discuss Irish Weather and we will have a Q & A session where Evelyn will answer questions on our experience of weather in the uplands. We will have her analysis of photos of curious atmospheric and weather conditions submitted by our members.

MountainViews member Peter Walker, will talk about ‘An Englishman’s experience of walking in Ireland’, recounting some of the unique experiences he has had as he explores the length and breadth of the land.

Simon Stewart, publisher of MountainViews, will present the new MountainViews 2.0 website and demonstrate how it is one of the most modern and useful online resources for Irish hillwalkers – seamlessly integrating mapping, gps and routes, while continuing to be an invaluable depository of members contributions and experiences.

The MountainViews committee will present the new MountainViews book - "The Vandeleur-Lynams and The Arderins. A Guide to Ireland's Mountain Summits". For the first time both of these mountain lists are published together, using updated data and information as contributed by the MountainViews.ie community. It will prove to be an invaluable resource for all hillwalkers and summiteers.

The night will conclude with our annual awards ceremony as we award certificates to those who have achieved various goals in 2012 such as completing the Irish County Highpoints etc.

The event is open to all and is taking place at the Landsdowne Hotel, 27/29 Pembroke Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4. www.lansdownehoteldublin.com.

The cost of entry is €5 per person, which helps to cover the cost of the night.

Registration is from 7:30pm with the talks beginning at 8pm sharp. The night concludes at 10pm.

We would like to invite MountainViews members to come along to enjoy the talks while taking the opportunity to meet fellow MountainViews members. Places are limited and we recommend pre-booking your place by emailing secretary@mountainviews.ie.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Colin Murphy a few minutes ago.

My final Vandeleur-Lynam! Unfortunately No. 273 wasn't the most distinctive summit (when I came off Mangerton I couldn't even pick it out on the landscape) , but the views from the top are tremend...

Dromderalough NE Top: Long route from the south.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: Colin Murphy less than an hour ago.
Not normally done in isolation, this top usually forms part of a walk involving Dromderalough itself or Mangerton. One approach is from the north, which has the advantage of a gently rising track ...

Mangerton: The Lake District

I followed Sandmans instructions - thanks for those - it's a bit of a time consuming and boring climb, and the views from the top arent great. I wouldnt prioritise it if you have time constraints ...
