About us

High Point Ireland is the official online home of the Gribbon list of Ireland’s major geographical high points.

High Point Ireland introduced the sports discipline of Highpointeering to the world on 17th May 2017 when it announced several key sporting initiatives on the website (www.highpointireland.com), including two all-Ireland leagues (the Counties League and the Provinces League). Prior to this, the informal leisure activity of high point ‘bagging’ had experienced a steady rise in popularity as a personal challenge among Irish hillwalkers. The transition from being an informal leisure activity to becoming a sports discipline was the natural next stage in its evolution. As the entity which is solely responsible for this development and for the future development of the discipline, High Point Ireland identifies itself as the governing body for Highpointeering in both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
