Starting from the summit of Lugnaquilla at 11am, we descended into the Glen of Imaal, before heading to Kippure. Up and down the access road, before on to the mighty Cupidstown, up the track and back through the field. Another access road as we tackled Mount Leinster from the nine stones. Then on to one of the highlights of the day, Mount Brandon from the Inistogue side before dusk, very enjoyable. It was but a distant memory in the darkness of the Slieve Blooms as we bog trotted up and down to Arderin. The website has cut the track into two, so on to track 2557 if you want to follow our adventures!!
