Ireland's County Second Summits
I got an email recently from Miriam Kennedy as a result of completing the County Highpoints list. I didn't complete the survey in time, but it has got me thinking. The Seven Second Summits is considered a harder challenge than the Seven Summits, so I wondered what an Irish County version would be like. I couldn't find a listing anywhere, so I put together the attached list myself. Let me know if I've gotten any of them wrong!
