“Every time you come out, the mountain has changed,” said Martin Connolly.

I was hiking on Sliabh Beagh with Martin and Donna McCarra, local guides with Sliabh Beagh Adventures. A day earlier, views from the mountain stretched over several counties. Now, it was moody. A grey veil of mist gathered around us; boggy ground slopped and plopped and squelched underfoot.
