New Books - Christmas shopping sorted!
Two wonderful new books on Irish mountains have been published recently. They would make fine Christmas presents for any hill walker or just buy them for your own pleasure.
The MacGillycuddy's Reeks by Valerie O'Sullivan and The Mountains of Ireland by Gareth McCormack. Both are published by Collins Press. They are coffee table books rather than guidebooks. They both have numerous fine photographs. Perfect for a miserable winters evening. I'll ad more detailed reviews to this site when I've had time to read them in full.
