We had a truly memorable hike today. At Eagles View car park it would have been tempting to head for the shelter of the coffee shop or return home but the hardy souls who came were not for turning. The forecasted heavy rainfall turned out to be a number of brief wintry showers. The strong winds were more of a feature and at their highest measured in excess of 110kph. This made for tough progress in the headwinds. We still completed our intended hike in good time with the bonus of an ascent up Truskmore included. That meant we ticked off the two highest peaks in the entire Dartry mountain range. A most rewarding day and well done all who came and enjoyed the experience. Thanks you for coming.
