Fei Sheehy Challenge
Fellow Walker,

You may have heard of the Fei Sheehy Challenge which took place for the first time in 2014. If you havenít; itís a three day, self-navigating, hill walking challenge to Ďcrossí the Comeragh, Galty and Knockmealdown mountain ranges. Pre-registered participants can elect to do one, two or three days.

It's a charity fundraiser and the money raised via registration fees and sponsorship cards goes to the nominated charities. This year, the nominated beneficiaries are

Barretstown &
Start360

You can also elect to raise funds for your own chosen charity. To date, we have raised over Ä20,000 for charities and voluntary organisations.

Weíre going ahead with the event again this year (19th, 20th, 21st August) and pre-registration is open. If you log on to the website www.FeiSheehyChallenge.net you can pre-register now. Numbers are limited. If you canít participate and want to help out, you can donate via the website or sponsor someone else that's taking part .

If you're in a club, you should try and organise a group to do it. I'd love to get a bit of lively banter going, between a few clubs, for the Club Challenge. If accommodation is an impediment for the Club Challenge I'm willing to contact walkers in the area about home-stays for those that might have long distances to travel. A small donation to the fundraising effort for availing of this service (in lieu of a B&B) would be fair, I think.

Stay fit, uninjured and safe.

Gerard Sheehy.

Lackakeely: An easy bag after Mweelrea
magnumpig a day ago.
Mweelrea is a sweaty old climb (for me anyways) and if, like me, you feel that climbing it deserves bagging more than one peak, you should visit Lackaleely. Basically it's a small rise overlooking...

As mentioned by Bunsen7, the entrance to the windfarm is the best way to access this hill. Note that there are signs saying no unauthorized access but isn't that always the way. I did come across ...

Truskmore SE Cairn: Nice addition to Truskmore

No excuse not to come over here for a peek if you are at Truskmore, so that's what we did and it's worth it for the extra view.
