Cloch Mór, Foxford, Co. Mayo - Cliff Soaring Location

          
        

 From Foxford you take the old Ballina road, which goes through Attymass. The Ox Mountains begin here on the right of the road. Turn right at the signpost for Attymass, then farther on right again, and head uphill. The road gets narrow and steep, then there is a "hanging valley" with a small cliff face at its end, this is Cloch Mór, and there is a handy parking place provided.  This is a nice place.
On a calm evening bring midge repellent.
The slope is rock strewn in places, so landings are more relaxed if you fly a foamie. The parking place and middle of the slope slope faces almost due west, the best direction for prevailing winds, and you are in the centre of a horseshoe slope-cliff formation where there is lift everywhere!
I really like Cloch Mor slope. It has wonderful views of Lough Conn, and Nephin Mountain on it's far shore.

  Please email me your info about where you fly, so I can include it.    n o r m _ f l y e r @ y a h o o . c o . u k
