Paddy O' Leary is a well-known mountaineer, former director of the Tiglin National Adventure Centre and a member of the Irish Mountaineering Club.

Paddy's publication, The Way That We Climbed, recounts the history of hillwalking and mountaineering in Ireland, and shows that the early climbing scene was a reflection of, and not escape from, wider social issues: from the early activists – some were involved in gun running, others died at Gallipoli – to the turn of the millennium, when mountaineering in Ireland was no longer the preserve of the middle class.

This history recounts the adventures, dangers, successes and failures which make this multifaceted activity such a fascinating one, and mirrors the spirit of all who love these places.
