Kenny,

Irish OS does have contour lines even if they are very faint indeed. They're also printed on tissue paper, which is the reason for the lively discussion below on lamination. I've not been to West Cork yet but like you I'm planning a visit in the very near future. So far I've read Richard Mersey's "Hills of Cork and Kerry"and Seán'Ó Súilleabháin's Walker's Guide to the South West. The first is a Tom Weir style very personal view but seems brutally honest. The circuit round Tooth Mountain and Lackabane seems fantastic but his cheerful description of a greasy descent to a field of swamps and walls is a bit too realistic. Ó Súilleabháin's book I've used around Dingle and found it very useful. It too has eccentricities, keeps reminding you that a map and compass are useful if there's mist and has a stunningly unappealing cover photo of a beautiful place obscured by cloud. Again brutally honest, I suppose.
