Check out this short video, from Skycam Ireland, taken today showing the conditions on the military road. Though beautiful, it shows the treacherous conditions on the military road.

Knockanaffrin Ridge

Check out this superb video from Gerry McVeigh featuring a walk of Knockanaffrin Ridge in the Comeragh Mountains.

The Comeraghs are a range that we haven’t featured on this website so it’s great them captured on video. If you’ve walked in the Comeraghs, we’d love to see some photos from the area as well as suggestions of walks that we could cover for the website.
