“No goggles or glacier glasses, no hi-tech axes or day-glo Gore-Tex adorned the Alpinists of the mid-nineteenth century. The achievements of Irish mountaineers from the 1850s to the early twentieth century are largely obscured in British historical accounts. This book sets the record straight. Frank Nugent, mountaineer-explorer, reveals a significant Irish contribution beginning with the Golden Age of Alpine Mountaineering when the first ascents of mountains like the Eiger and Weisshorn and the first traverse of the Matterhorn from Italy were by Irish climbers.”

To find out more about the hidden historical Irish Alpine Pioneers, come along to our illustrated lecture on November 6th. Tickets can be paid for at the door. €5.00 for M.I. members, €8.00 for everyone else.
