I’m climbing Nephin from Lahardane on Saturday, March 19th, meeting at the village post office / shop at 10 am. Drop me a line, or phone 086 – 8318748, if you’d like to join our group.

If you’re feeling like a real weekend up in the hills, you can then consider the slightly mad notion of a sunrise hike up Birreencorragh early in the morning of Sunday, March 20th, the day of the spring equinox. That’s a 4.30 am start at the trailhead. Pints the previous evening are not advised, that’s for sure ! There is a charge of Euro 20 for the sunrise hike.

Come on, you know you want to.
