If you are planning to visit any of the locations on the Gribbon list, please be aware that Highpointeering, rambling, hill-walking, hiking, mountaineering and mountain running are risk sports. High Point Ireland, Kieron Gribbon (the website's author and founder of High Point Ireland) and Donard Media (the website's publisher) accept no responsibility for any injury, loss or inconvenience sustained by anyone using this website. Personal safety is entirely the participant's own responsibility.
The inclusion of locations on the Gribbon list of Ireland's major geographical high points is based entirely on each location's ability to meet the necessary criteria for at least one of the eight Gribbon sub-lists contained on this website. It should not be assumed that access is permitted to any of the locations on the Gribbon list. High Point Ireland, Kieron Gribbon and Donard Media recommend that anyone planning to visit any of the locations on the Gribbon list should check for potential access restrictions and to request permission from the relevant landowner(s) in advance.
Supporting good causes
High Point Ireland values the life-saving work undertaken by the mountain rescue teams which are represented by Mountain Rescue Ireland - a 24-hour 999/112 emergency service provided entirely by volunteers and supported by government funds and public donations. Despite government and public support, the teams remain under-funded and members are required to undertake their own fundraising activities.
