    Brilliant idea to get people used to reading maps, using compass, etc.

    Was out in the Reeks yesterday and met a group of 5 young people looking for directions to the top of Corran Tuathail !

    They had jeans, a bottle of water and a sweater on them, no maps, compass, rain gear, etc.

    Everyone should take a course such as the one outlined here, it could save a life.

    How often does this course take place? Can’t make Nov 5th but myself and my husband would be keen to do it perhaps in the New Year 😉
