On the back cover:  The MacGillycuddy's Reeks are Ireland's highest mountains with Carrauntoohil tallest at 1,039m. Occupying about 100 square km, they stretch from the picturesque Gap of Dunloe in the east to Glencar in the west. Attracting over 25,000 walkers annually, they are a wonderful natural amenity.
