Icon, Yukon, ...?
Some very interesting and entertaining contributions to this topic, both of the serious and not-so-serious variety. dhmiriam's wordplay gives me an excuse to share a little bit of urban Norniron lore with you. In East Belfast there is a Yukon Street. Nothing surprising about that, you say. But what is the name of the next street along? Think about it.... Yes, it's Meekon Street. And I con you and kid you not either! For those too young to remember, this street is named after Dan Dare's arch-enemy, the Meekon, the archetypal pointy-headed alien. Anyway, to come back on topic, I too am rather surprised at the ones Simon mentions as being highly rated by members. If I had to limit my choice to those hills listed in MV, I would keep Croaghaun, Corranabinnia and maybe Arnageer (haven't done it yet, but I gather there's an interesting arete to look forward), but would have to throw out the others and add Ben Wiskin with its wave-like profile from Ballinatrillick, the Paps for their megalithically enhanced curves (I distinctly remember picking them out against a magnificent sunset while driving back to Tralee one evening, and I was in Emly, Co. Tipperary! How's that for a view?) and Fauscoum for its spectacular ridges which wall in Coumshingaun. Of course, the Eye of the Needle, summit of Skellig Michael which I mentioned earlier, is in the MV list, so that can stay too.

Cnoc na SleŠ: Not To Be Judged On Size

A small hill, but as it can form part of an extended walk, has some very steep sides, and has some of the best views in the country, it cannot be judged by size alone. I started at the car park at...
