awesome sea views
by YoungJohn  1 May 2013
Parked at the Deserted Village of Slievemore. Headed for the ridge near the obvious rock outcrop. Then followed the broad ridge to the summit. What spectacular wide atlantic ocean views! The twelve pins, belmullet peninsula, blacksod bay, croagh Patrick and too many other moumtains to list but Croaghan was majestic in d near distance Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/153/comment/14980/

A PATRICK ZERKOWSKI FILM
by CaptainVertigo  25 Jan 2015
There is no doubt about the fact that a fine day is hugely helpful for those making movies designed to show off outdoor scenery. I suspect that that's why we have harvested so many top class pieces during the great summers of 2013 and 2014. But you need a lot more than a fine day to make a film of lasting value. You need loads of hard work, craft and a huge dash of creativity: let's call it art. Well Patrick has gathered the whole lot together in ACHILL ISLAND 2014. which tells the story of just one day on Achill in May 2014 when Patrick covered nearly all the high spots on the island. His first target was Slievemore. His route to the summit (starting on the Doogort side) involved various diversions and well as recording many sumptuous views. Anyone planning a walk on Slievemore has the luxury of yet another super movie to help with the preparations. During the bleak days after Christmas it's great to whet your appetite with summer movies: it's the hillwalking equivalent of looking at holiday brochures.
