About: During the period 1938-1975, J.B. Malone wrote almost 1,000 articles on rambling, walking, cycling or driving to and in the Dublin and Wicklow Mountains. Every article had a detailed sketch map of the route, drawn by himself. He was a leading figure in the establishment of the Wicklow Way in 1982. This book indexes all Malone’s articles published in the Evening Herald and makes it easy to locate his visits to individual places, mountains, hills and valleys.
