Geocache Description:



Visit The Geocaching Ireland discussion forum HERE


Here of a Sunday morning
My love and I would lie,
And see the coloured counties,
And hear the larks so high
About us in the sky.

The bells would ring to call her
In valleys miles away:
"Come all to church, good people;
Good people, come and pray."
But here my love would stay.

And I would turn and answer
Among the springing thyme,
"Oh, peal upon our wedding,
And we will hear the chime,
And come to church in time."
(A.E. Houseman)


I always wondered about the mountain or bit of mountain that adjoins the Sugarloaf to the right as you see it from the N11. Looking at the OSI map the area is called Glencap Commons North but when I went to investigate I decided to move just a little further again away from the Sugarloaf to a small separate hump which I have decided to call "The Sugarlump"!!
This is where I have hidden the cache and together with "Sweet Hiking" and the "Sugar" cache it makes for a nice total hike of about 2 hours, 5K and 250M ascent, to take in all three. In the case of this cache, all you have to do is pick up a little information at the parking area, or Stage 1, and the rest is simple. The little dip before you reach the final "Lump" can be a bit soggy after rain so good shoes or boots may be required. If you decide to go directly from the summit of the Sugarloaf to this cache it will be very rocky and ankle twisting terrain. Just be aware of it as it is possible to circumvent the base of the Sugarloaf to get to this cache and the going is much easier.

Stage 1:
In the parking area at N53 08.675 W006 09.279 you will find the last 3 numbers of N (the top ones, call them ABC) and W (the bottom ones, call them DEF) of the final coordinates.
The final coordinates will then be: N53 09.ABC W006 09.DEF

Do not start the trek without all the proper mountain rain gear, waterproof boots and the guidance material, compass, map, GPSr with mapping etc.

Please note that all parts of this cache are hiked at your own risk. The cache owner takes no responsibility of any sort for any reason including accidents or mishaps.

Please be aware that cars parked in areas close to walking trails are vulnerable and they can be vandalised or stolen. Unfortunately this is an ongoing problem which is extremely difficult to solve, so there is a risk involved. I have heard recently that many hiker groups are parking at the nearest population centres and getting taxis to and from the start points at very little expense.

Please observe the country code to the best of your ability. Local landowners often generously allow access to upland areas across or through parts of their private property. Please, please be conscious of this and return the courtesy by keeping all gates closed, immediately and not on your way back!. Please use the gates where appropriate but if you have to climb over them then use the hinged side ONLY.
Please do not cause any damage of any sort to fences or barriers along the way.
