It was a terrific day, with perfect weather and magnificent views. Seven members set off along the Beara Way track, climbing steadily to the col just west of Sugarloaf. From there, it was a challenging out-and-back route to the summit itself over the uniquely boggy and rocky terrain of West Cork. En route, we encountered a young French “WOOF”er who was delighted with both weather and views, and a solitary local walker, who must have been turbo-powered he was going so fast! He kindly took our summit photo. It was a very happy and satisfied group that adjourned to Glengarriff afterwards for a well-deserved meal.
