The Gribbons are the official list of most notable geographical high point locations in Ireland. The overall list of 186 Gribbons represents the highest points in 254 named areas (four provinces, thirty-two counties, forty-two local council areas, 123 mountain / hill ranges, thirty major islands, and twenty-three major river catchments) and a further eighty-nine unnamed areas (forty-eight 20km isolations and forty-one 500m prominences). While the Gribbon list is primarily a resource for anyone interested in Irish geography, it is also a useful companion for hill-walkers and mountaineers. Together with this website, the book is the hub for the activity of Gribboneering.
To help support the volunteer mountain rescue teams who provide emergency services in Ireland's wild and remote places, 50% of author royalties and 50% of Donard Press profits earned through sales of this book will be donated to Mountain Rescue Ireland.
