Mullaghmore (and Sliabh Rua)
Context of comment:Thanks for your suggestion Simon3. However I found the 'Propose data base Change' to be too much of a challenge for my PC skills (The 'Propose New summit' would not scroll down fully for me when I clicked on it and some of the terms - easting, northing - are beyond my ken, so I couldn't fill it out), consequently I'm making my proposal here: Mullaghmore (from the Irish An Mullach Mor -The Big Summit) is famous for its flora and attendant wildlife and is distinctive geologically because of its limestone formations. It featured very largely in the Irish psyche and culture back in the nineties on account of the controversy surrounding a proposed interpretive centre. During this long debate, and subsequently, Mullaghmore became central in our attitude to the environment, specifically the preservation of wilderness, public access, etcBecause of this, ask a person in the street to name a mountain or hill in Clare and chances are Mullaghmore would top the list. For this reason alone it merits inclusion under the 'cultural' banner. Historically it also has significance. For good measure I would also suggest the inclusion of Sliabh Rua in your lists, because its limestone coils are even more impressive than Mullaghmore's, and floristically it's just as interesting. These are two landmark hills.

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...

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.

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 ...
