Brandon isn't the second highest peak in Ireland. Two in the McGillycuddy's Reeks are higher - Caher and Ben Keeragh. Maybe Brandon is the highest ouside the Reeks. I'm not sure. Hiking it this weekend though - hope the weather holds up!!
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
