Summary:  Walking guidebook detailing seventy quality routes of various grades throughout the higher mountain ranges in Ireland. Contains routes passing over all 212 Irish mountain summits higher than 2,000 feet above sea level (the list is based on Dillon's own assessments). PLEASE NOTE: access information for some of the walks described in this book may now be out-of-date.

On the back cover:  A comprehensive guide, now the classic guide, to Ireland's 200 summits of 2,000ft or more and to the country's 12 summits exceeding 3,000ft. The mountains are described clockwise from Wicklow to the Mournes, and offer a choice of 70 walking routes. The guide divides the peaks into five groups, and at the start of each 'Paddy's Way' is described - the way the author tackled them - so that anyone who wants to emulate him has full directions.
