#IrelandTrigPillar photos (by Kieron Gribbon)

As part of The Ireland Walking Guide’s #NovemberTrigWalk theme, Kieron Gribbon shares some of his #IrelandTrigPillar photos.

I was a map addict long before I became a hillwalker. Even though I hadn’t yet set foot in the Irish uplands, I knew those little triangular symbols on the maps represented something special in the real world. 

Below I have compiled a photo log of the trig pillars I have visited over the years up to and including the year 2018.

(As a result of this blog post, all of the trig pillars below have now been marked as verified on The Ireland Walking Guide‘s dedicated Google Map.)
