I just received this link in an email from the folks we let our cottage from in Grenagh/Mourne Abbey...
We spent a morning chasing down the Abbey but could find no way to access it and the bull in field didn't look too friendly.
I will have my trip report started soon. Life issues getting in the way...finally over the cough crud I brought back with me....and the Friday came and my son was in an accident with my truck...Son is okay...fingers crossed...they think the truck is repairable.
I do have some pictures up on my FB account....
I always thought that it was only a matter of time ---

We were just there at Connor Pass two weeks ago. That car park at the top of Connor Pass has what looks like a very strong stone fence, I don't know how a car could go through that. Let us know if you hear more details.
Just this morning I was reading in a Kerry newspaper that a visitor was dramatically airlifted from a beach in Ballybunion at the weekend after surviving a 100 foot fall from a clifftop. www.kerryman.ie
Got to watch those Irish cliffs. Soon they will fence all of them in like the Cliffs of Moher.

The Irish Times - Saturday, July 23, 2011
A mans body has been recovered from deep in the Conor Pass near Dingle, Co Kerry, after a passerby noted the wall of the mountain pass car park at the summit had been broken and spotted a car 300m down the hillside.
Dingle Sea and Cliff Rescue sent down a team and found the body beside the car.
The body was removed by the Shannon-based Coast Guard helicopter. A postmortem is being carried out at Kerry General Hospital.

Here's a pic without the fog. And another of the stone wall on the other side.

The fence you showed in the 8:24 photo is behind the stone wall at the car park where it drops down (see the youtube video). It will show the fence behind the stone wall. The news reports stated that the wall was broken.
And, now ... An Irish Hurricane!

Just stumbled across THIS and thought it might be handy:
It's a guide to Dublin Pub, replete with maps, lists of deals, etc....
Glad to help ---
By the Way -- SEEMS like the Interactive Google Map isn't working (for ME, at least! ) Every time I 'Click' on it, it takes me to a different page ...
The Links elsewhere appear to work fine, though, so it could prove to be a handy site ...
If that site was around when I was there last year, I might still be walking around Dublin! Oh my...
