Completion of Beara Breifne Way
Having walked 536 km from Glengarriff to Leitrim village in 28 stages ( twice as long, (time -wise) ,as O Sullivan Beare !) four walkers ,Tom Barragry,Nicholas O Neill, Michael Donohue and Aidan Cruise recently completed the full Bear Breifne Way, which commemorates the historic retreat of O Sullivan Beare from the Beara peninsula in 1603 , when he reached O Rourkes castle in Leitrim village in 14 days with only 35 of the original 1000 followers surviving. The Way is composed of many individual way marked trails..Beara Way,Duhallow Way ,Muskerry, Way Ormonde Way, Multeen Way,Hymany way etc. While the walk is historically most interesting and stimulating,and quite beautiful in parts, much more co ordination needs to be done with signage, rights of ways and information along the route.Some parts of the trail have clearly recieved more attention than others, and are far easier and more attractive to walk than other parts. Nonetheless it is a rewarding walk for those interested not only in the historical significance of the walk, but also on account of the wealth of local history one encounters of,people, places ,historical figures, geographical features, beautiful vistas, castles, clans, Norman Tower Houses, big houses , monasteries & historical ruins along the way. A great way to learn about your country!

madfrankie a day ago.
The Pilgrims Path which starts from near Teelin (the path is well sign-posted from the village) is an interesting approach to the SE Top, and would be more lauded were it not for the more spectacu...

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...

Maulin: Misty morning

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 magicked this sprite into the ...

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.

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...

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 ...
