A fun time was had by all as we went up Donard by Thomas' Mountain, dropped down to the Brandy Pad before meandering under and eventually over Commedagh. The long drop down over Shanslieve led us back to the start before the inevitable tea, medals, food and booze (in varying measures). Those who haven't been on one of these trips before should know a) it's great, and b) it's not too demanding...this outing was definitely in 'B' territory (look how long we took, after all).
