Iorras is an obsolete word for a peninsula now only found in place-names, e.g. Iorras Beag / Errisbeg, Iorras Aithneach, Iorras Fhlannáin / Errislanan and Ceann Iorrais / Erris Head. In this name it seems to denote that part of Inishowen which projects into Lough Swilly in the vicinity of Dunaff Head.   Urris Hills is the 867th highest place in Ireland. Urris Hills is the most westerly summit in the Inishowen area.

A Video Preview

Published by MV's Gerry McVeigh this beautiful and instructive video is described on YouTube as: "A stunning walk over the Urris Hills and Raghtin More on Inishowen, Donegal, Ireland. Climbing from the golden sands of Lenan Strand to the hills overlooking Lough Swilly and the northernmost reaches of Ireland. Dropping to Mamore Gap and the holy well & grotto then climbing to the heights of Raghtin More. A mini mountain range that can be easily walked in a day." If you have any notion of walking this way you really must watch this video. And if you can't or won't walk, you should watch it anyway!!
