Laura FlynnMay 28 2022, 4:49pmFantastic effort by you both and great to have another woman complete the round. Congratulations Maeve.
Maeve O'GradyMay 29 2022, 7:40amThanks very much for all the well wishes and support from everyone. Tough day out for sure. It seems so straight forward when you watch people on the tracker, but it doesn’t quite tell the story of battling through waist high heather and crawling under gorse bushes around Lough Dan:-) I’m never going to Knocknacloghogue again!! Great to have it done though. Thanks again and see you on the hills.
Maike JürgensMay 29 2022, 9:41amWell done Maeve (and Dan - hard luck). Fourth Woman if i am not mistaken?
Róisín McDonnellMay 29 2022, 11:10amFantastic achievement well done Maeve, and hard luck Dan.
Brian FureyMay 29 2022, 1:02pmWell done Maeve great achievement. Good effort Dan you'll get the next one
Donal McMorlandMay 30 2022, 3:43pmWell done Maeve, fantastic achievement! What was it like crossing the Inchavore river at the mouth? I checked it out on one recce but river was v.high and didn't seem doable.
Maeve O'GradyMay 30 2022, 7:20pm@Donald, the river was just below my waist, but I wasn’t turning around at that stage! The main issue with crossing there is that it is very silty, so my shoes filled up with all that shingle that is on the beach at Lough Dan, which was very abrasive on the feet. I would cross further up the river ideally (and not go crawling though the gorse fields there also!). Reckon I lost 30/40 mins just on that leg so a bit of reccie would be beneficial, or else hit it in the daylight.
Maeve O'GradyMay 30 2022, 7:24pmApologies: ^Donal (autocorrect!)
Donal McMorlandMay 31 2022, 8:32pmThanks Maeve and well done again!
