HOWL AT THE FULL MOON
Ah Eoin, 1st April as it is you have still raised an important issue. Your information about the new group H.O.W.L stirred my memory. I have rescued from the depths of MountainViews.ie a General Forum article I wrote back in 2010 about a shadowy new group called F.U.L.L M.O.O.N, who want to bring back the wolf to Ireland. In the article I wondered about the endless list of hill-users who would argue against wolves, and how they would be blamed for everything including hill walkers losing their maps! Use the link below to read that original article.

On a separate note – on another occasion when I had time to spare (a distant memory now!) I did some tongue-in-cheek sleuthing to find out why Wolftrap Mountain in the Slieve Blooms is called …Wolftrap Mountain. My butchered version of history can be found here

So what about a joint venture called ‘’Hibernian Organisation of Wolves’ And The Tremendous Highland Enterprise 'Fauna Unfulfilled Lacking Lupines, Meet Our Objectives Now' otherwise to be known as HOWL AT THE FULL MOON?

There would be no stopping us!

Brougher Mountain: A quick bag.

Nothing much to add to the comments already. Drove most of the way up from the North side of the hill to within 450 metres of the trig point. Nothing to recommend to anybody who is looking to get ...

Geo's directions are spot on. At the aforementioned Coilte forest entrance there is a sign staing no unauthorized vehicles beyond this point as the gate may close at any point. However as the Lazy...

Nothing to add to the directions provided by melohara. Just to mention two things, the parking place was littered with close to a hundred empty beer cans, it looks like there was a party there or ...

Relatively recent history has liberated Camlough Mountain from the bonds of the military: some metallic paraphernalia remains high on its slopes but if one puts that aside it's a cracking little e...

Carrigshouk: Accessible but not necessarily easy.

Although Carrigshouk is very close to a road it's quite a rough little walk, with deep heather, boulders, scrub and the remants of old tree planting. The worst of this can be avoided by parking ea...
