The mountains of Ireland are wild and untrodden. There is a powerful and magnetic quality to Irelandâ€™s high places, a mix of mountains and sea that creates an indelible impression and inexorably draws one back. From High Places is a celebration of Irelandâ€™s great mountains. A collection of stunning images taken from the peaks of these mountains, it will transport you from the quartzite giants of Connemara, the wild summits of Donegal, the sweeping mountains of Mourne, to the towering peaks of Kerry. In addition to these images, the author describes his own unique experiences exploring these mountain areas and interweaves these with an account of the local history, folklore, and geology. From High Places will inspire the reader, be they beginner or experienced hill-walker, to set out and explore the magnificent mountains Ireland has to offer.

"The stunning images and compelling narrative are more than enough to inspire this reader to get off the couch and start walking!" —Bernadette McDonald, author, Voices from the Summit
