This was the great day on the Comeragh Crossing as specified by https://www.irishmountainchallenges.com/comeragh-crossing The challenge start is the Old Bridge in Clonmal and the finish at Duke of Devonshire Bridge in Dungravan. Summit names listed in the challange details were taken from East-West mapping. Croughduff(Carrignagower) was reached after 4.5 hours (20km) by which the majority of the climbing is done. Granted the next couple of hours were a bit of a slog crossing the very boggy ground that is Comeragh Plateau before the better ground after Seefin. From here its a real pleasure with the wonderful views towards Dungravan and the sea. 10km from the final summit Cruachan to the finish half of which is on the road. John & Pat Barry
