22 Nov 2010 - what a day!
by jkforde  26 Nov 2010
Walked the horseshoe on the 22nd Nov and what a day! Started from the sluices at bottom of Doo Lough (parked the car across the road in a roadside worn patch); up steep, safe grassy gully - phone pic is from the top of this section, it was like something from Lord of the Rings! Rest was plain sailing and back to car via the forestry track north of SE ridge. I rank it one of the best walks I've ever done. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/51/comment/6167/

Duloch and the Glenumemera Twist

On route to point 760 on Lugmore east, if you look back this is what you will behold.
Sheeffry Hills to left , Ben Gorm to right / background , Doo Lough below left leading to the Glenumemera river twisitng its way towards Tawnyard Lough. This photo was taken at the foot of a short scramble before the grassy top. Delphi to point 760 and back is around 4 hours, most of which will be taken up navigating the long grass from road to foot of mountain, slow marshy / boggy ground with holes that can snap an ankle. Next time I will start at mid point of Owengarr river to east end of range , steeper but I reckon alot quicker. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/51/comment/6364/

Geo on Ben Lugmore East Top, 2009
by Geo  11 Oct 2009
The last of the five summits on our day in the Mweelrea mountains. We had started N of Doo Lough but had a car on the S end as well so as to be able to make a circuit without the bitter after taste of a tarmac slog the length of Doo Lough at the end. This turned out to be wise, however I will make one caveat to this whole circuit, that is, coming down off Ben Lugmore East by going east to Spot height 760metres and then south east towards Fin Lough there is very difficult ground for the last couple of kilometres.There are tussocks of sharp long difficult grass, which are next to impossible to traverse. I must have up ended myself at least a half a dozen times. Anyway, I will forgive all this as the whole preceding 5 or 6 hours doing the Mweelrea's was one of my best walks ever. Brilliant!
