Bernard Davey's Mourne

£14.99

Product description

From the back cover, by the author:

"For many years putting together an accurate and informative weather forecast with the BBC was my daily challenge. All this dramatically changed in 1994 when I had to take early retirement because of ill health. I returned to live in Newcastle on the foothills of the Mourne Mountains unsure of what lay ahead.

"As a boy on holidays I had enjoyed the Mournes, but more recently I have been able to appreciate the region in a way I never envisaged. I began walking with the Mourne Heritage Trust and soon realised that I wasn't alone in wanting to know more about the mountains, the coast, the history and the flora and fauna.

"Over the last three years, writing a book on the subject became my consuming passion. My ten favourite walks through the stunning landscape of the Mournes, amply illustrated with photographs and informative notes has, I hope, brought alive this most beautiful part of Ireland, both for the keen walker and those yet to pull on their first pair of boots.

"The chapter on weather will help you choose a suitable day for your walk while the route cards and maps inside the back cover will guide you on your way."

With a foreword by Bill Giles
