Mountaineering Ireland - Hillwalkers Working
"Decisions are taken by the people that turn up"
If you are concerned about the future progress of the sport of hillwalking in Ireland you may be interested in the following, currently on the Mountaineering Ireland website.

Note: this includes non-club hillwalkers.

Hillwalking Working Group

In keeping with a motion from the Irish Ramblers Club, which was approved at Mountaineering Irelandís recent AGM, Mountaineering Ireland is seeking expressions of interest from people who are interested in joining a Hillwalking Working Group. The purpose of the group is to undertake a survey, and to develop terms of reference and propose an initial work programme for a Mountaineering Ireland Hillwalking Committee.

It is likely that the work of the group will extend over a number of months between now and the end of 2018. The aim is to form a diverse working group which includes representation from different geographic areas, large and small clubs and non-club hillwalkers, as well as Mountaineering Ireland Board and staff members. Those who are interested should send an email to info@mountaineering.ie before 5pm on Wednesday 16th May, outlining what skills, experience and personal qualities they would bring to assist the working group. Members of the working group will be selected and approved by the Board of Mountaineering Ireland.

Slieveboy: Default hill

I've forgotten how many times I've gone up this hill, must be over 50. I live relatively close so its the easy option when larger 'expeditions' are a non starter. It has a very decent balcony walk...

Sugarloaf Hill is usually climbed from Bay Lough Car Park, S03056 09981, ample parking there. Cross the road and follow the wall and the eroded path all the way up, it's steep enough but you'll re...

Just sometimes and just for a short while a damp forest can show a misty fairy side. And so it was one January day after a heavy raincloud had passed and the sun had majicked this sprite into the ...

Slieve Beg: Southern plunge

The famous side of Slieve Beg is the NE, gashed by the Devils Coachroad. However the SE side also has its drama.Taken on a frosty slippy day from Cove.

Colin Murphy 3 days ago.
On my approach to the summit I came across a large field of hundreds of these rather striking formations, which I think are are moss-covered boulders, but which looked like giant green ant-hills o...

My final Vandeleur-Lynam! Unfortunately No. 273 wasn't the most distinctive summit (when I came off Mangerton I couldn't even pick it out on the landscape) , but the views from the top are tremend...

Dromderalough NE Top: Long route from the south.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: Colin Murphy 3 days ago.
Not normally done in isolation, this top usually forms part of a walk involving Dromderalough itself or Mangerton. One approach is from the north, which has the advantage of a gently rising track ...
