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.
