Ah yes...The Dromderaloughs...in cloud and rain...'climb me once, shame on me, climb me twice, shame on thee'.
I had climbed Dromderalough some years ago in Autumn, in cloud and rain, using Paddy Dillon's guide to the 2000 footers. It was before I found the MV website and realised there was another top, NE top, which is higher, so I knew that I would have to return some day. Then an MV member (?) showed that there was a third top, the NW top, exceeding the 600m mark. So, on the May Bank Holiday monday, following two days of heat and sunshine I set off again from Limerick and completed the route from the South...in cloud and rain...again. I used an approach from the South, from Kilgarvan, and although there is a 'No Trespassing' sign near the start, if you keep to the East bank of the stream coming down from the plateau, there are no signs on this side. I suspect that when the Gods was making the mountains around here, they used the Dromderaloughs as the 'Works Yard'...all the bits of rocks, tussocks, hillocks, ponds and lakes that were not used in the Reeks and Mangerton, were just left behind, randomly...I understand that the views from here are very fine. The Dromderaloughs...Ah yes. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/194/comment/19914/
