This is the most mountainous part of the country, covering south of a line drawn from Limerick City to Waterford City, and includes Kerry, Cork, Waterford and the southern parts of Limerick and Tipperary. The areas of South-East Limerick, South Tipperary and West Waterford contain the Galtee, Knockmealdown and Comeragh mountain ranges. Many of the peaks on these ranges exceed 600 metres in height. In general, they tend to be covered with grass/bog and are relatively easy to climb. Expect a 3 to 4 hour round trip for most of the higher peaks. These peaks probably provide the best opportunities for VHF operation in that there are fewer obstructing hills to the East and North and allow the possibility of working into Wales and SW England. North Cork, South Limerick and North Kerry contain the Ballyhoura and Mullaghareirk mountain ranges. Most summits are less than 400 metres in height and some are quiet close to public roads. Most are easily accessible by a short walk although access via private land may be an issue. The South West of Cork contains many peaks, most of them less than 600 metres. Many have public roads close by. VHF operation on them may be poor as they are not close to any population centre and the mountains to the North and East act as obstructions. VHF contacts to Cornwall may be possible. The West and South West of Kerry has some of the most rugged and highest mountains in Ireland. Many have steep sides and rocky slopes. Most of the higher peaks are quite a distance from any public road. Operation from the higher peaks should only be attempted if you have some hill walking experience. VHF operation from the lower peaks is likely to be disappointing due to the remoteness of the area. Weather in this area can change rapidly due to the fact that it is so close to the South-West coast.
