Sléibhte Mhám Toirc (The Maumturks / Maamturks , the Turks (fam.) ) Is a picturesque mountain range in Connemara in the west of Ireland. They are less well known than its more famous neighbors, the Twelve Bens on the other side of the Inagh Valley (and Western Way long distance path). They are not very large (up to 702) but a nice climb in good weather, with stunning views and no crowds. Dedicated fell runners run from Maumeen Leenaun in the south to the north in a single day.
