Irish Peaks book available from end of July

Irish Peaks is Mountaineering Ireland's new hillwalking guidebook. This hard-cover guide to Ireland's Highest Hundred mountains will be available to purchase directly from Mountaineering Ireland at the end of July.

Irish Peaks celebrates Ireland’s highest mountains through an inspiring collection of 71 hillwalking routes, contributed by Mountaineering Ireland members. These beautifully illustrated routes will encourage the reader to visit all of Ireland’s main mountain areas.

Irish Peaks is being published by Mountaineering Ireland in tribute to the late Joss Lynam, one of Ireland’s foremost mountaineers who passed away in 2011. Over four decades Joss wrote and edited many guidebooks for hillwalkers, including the original Irish Peaks book, published in 1982. Maintaining values that Joss upheld throughout his life, one of Mountaineering Ireland’s aims in producing this book is to promote responsible engagement with Ireland’s mountains, an engagement that is based on understanding and respect.

With restrictions on outdoor activities and travel now lifted, the publication of Irish Peaks is well-timed for hillwalkers planning a holiday in Ireland over the summer and autumn.
