Step up for your County
We invite you to #StepUpForYourCounty in the High Point Ireland Counties League. Established in 2017, our Counties League is the first-ever All-Ireland Highpointeering team competition to be contested between Ireland's thirty-two counties. Every Irish rambler, hillwalker, hiker, mountaineer and mountain runner qualifies as a member of his / her county's Highpointeering team. Each team member wishing to represent their county in the Counties League can do so by visiting High Point locations during the High Point Ireland league year (1st January - 31st December), logging those visits on the Peakhunter smartphone app AND via our online Highpointeer Score Form no later than 31st December at the end of that league year. During the following January, the five highest point-scorers from each county's team will officially become that county's "High 5". Those five scores added together will become the county's overall score. The county with the highest points score will be announced as the High Point Ireland Counties League champion.

- Download the Peakhunter app to your smartphone and set up a profile. Peakhunter is our official logging partner.

- Register your High Point visits with us using our online Highpointeer Score Form.
- By submitting Highpointeer Score Forms and indicating on them which county you wish to represent, you will be entering the High Point Ireland Counties League as a member of your county's Highpointeering team.
- The High Point Ireland league year runs from 1st January until 31st December. Highpointeer Score Forms received after 31st December of the respective league year will not be considered.
- During the league year, you are permitted to count up to four visits to each High Point location towards your Province's total points-score for the year.
- If visiting the same High Point location more than once, you must allow at least 48 hours between visits. Multiple visits to the same location within the same 48-hour period will only count as one visit. This is to ensure that you do not simply step out of a High Point's logging zone and back in immediately to log it again. Please note that all Peakhunter logs are time-stamped.
- If you are one of the five highest point-scoring entrants representing a specific county, you will be selected as one of your county's "High 5". Your score will form part of your chosen county's overall score and your name will be listed on your county's webpage on the High Point Ireland website.
- 1st place will be awarded to the county whose "High 5" team scores the highest combined points total during the league year. The winning county will be announced as the High Point Ireland Counties League champion for that year. Each member of the Counties League champion "High 5" team will receive a certificate bearing a Gold Award logo.
- 2nd place will be awarded to the county whose "High 5" team scores the 2nd highest combined points total during the league year. Each member of the 2nd-placed "High 5" team will receive a certificate bearing a Silver Award logo.
- 3rd place will be awarded to the county whose "High 5" team scores the 3rd highest combined points total during the league year. Each member of the 3rd-placed "High 5" team will receive a certificate bearing a Bronze Award logo.
