Islands of adventure 4
There's one place left on next weekends Islands of Adventure 4 trip to visit some new MV summits on the islands off the Mayo Coast. The summits are on Achill Beg (2 new summits), Inishturk (not new but only visited by 17 MVers) and Inishark (1 new summit). We have arranged with the Clare Ferry company (http://www.clareislandferry.com/) to hire a boat for the day of Saturday 5th July to visit these islands. The boat costs €750 for a 12 hour day and takes up to 12 persons and If all 12 places are filled the cost will be €62.50 per person. The boat will leave Roonagh pier at 8am. We will visit Inishark first as this is the furthest away.

If any MV member is interested in taking the last place then please could they contact me via the members messaging service.

Please note this is not an official Mountain Views event and I am not operating as a tour operator for this
