I was on this hill early in my MV days and noted "None of the summits on the ridge are named on the OS - but I've visited the grid references". This comment earned me 1 star, which seemed harsh. I'd also put a full report on the walk on Barrclashcame. Now I'd not totally worked out the use of the various settings on MV (ticking a hill to add to your list but necessarily leaving a comment, for instance) so partly I was just filling in the form. But I think I was also making a point. Is 30 metres enough definition to give an individual summit - shouldn't it be 50 or 100? I went to the summit just for completeness, the spot height (no name) on the map was an obvious turning point.

As for the hill well, as a hill it's dull, but has views to keep you singing the whole way along the ridge. Without the views it'd be a challenge for map and compass and not much else. However it achieves 93% on the overall rating (before I make my contribution) which is ahead of Mweelrea's 91% and suggests some MV contributors should come over and spend some time in the White Mounth. Or maybe work out the difference between view and aesthetic and get their ideas of challenge under control.

I stand by my original comment, this was a visit to a grid reference which has acquired an enormous name. As Milo asked, where did it come from? Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/82/comment/2792/

Let it snow let it snow let it snow.

The fact that the mountain tops were covered in snow and the day was sunny with blue skies made this an exceptional walk. This route is known as the Glenlaur Horseshoe. Starting at a small car park near Tawnyard Lough at L91564 68105 A, follow the road North East along the Western Way. Once you pass the Sheffrey bridge, it's possible to leave the road and continue to follow the Western Way at L91978 69726 B to a col overlooking Lough Lugacolliwee. From here head West to Tievnabinnia East Top and then on to Tievnabinnia. Descend South East to Tievnabinnia South East Top then drop down to Tawnyard. It's then possible to drop back down to the road along the Western Way which should leave you with less than a kilometer back to the car. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/82/comment/20142/

One of Ireland's highest waterfalls ?
by David-Guenot  7 Feb 2019
I thought I'd share this pic I took while exploring the summit area of Tievnabinnia E Top recently. This amazing waterfall cascades down the SE slopes of Tievnabinnia. The OSI map suggests it would be at least 220m high, which would mean it may be one of the highest waterfalls on the Emerald Isle. Just wonder if it's the same as the one which appears on Milo's pic ? Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/82/comment/20413/
