Retail tips for Calgarygirl.
Hi Calgarygirl, pdtempan is quite correct, was up in Newry two weeks ago and purchased 1:25 000 Activity Map for the Mournes produced by Ordnance Survey Of Northern Ireland for about seven pounds sterling or so. Found it in Easons Unit 2/3, at the Buttercrane Shopping Centre, Buttercrane Quay, in Newry, BT35 8HJ, UK. Phone ahead and ask them to check for stock first, on +44 28 3026 1037. The Maps are situated left of the entrance about mid-way down the store, but the staff are very friendly and helpful, and will be glad to help. Paddy Dillon's 'The Mournes' published by O'Brien press is also a good buy as are his 'Exploring the North of Ireland' and Exploring the South of Ireland' which I spotted in Easons in Dublin, and I guess will be found at most Easons stores, but in truth one will find it difficult to outdo the data and info found on Mountainviews. The shopping centre also has a store called Millets, contact Telephone number + 44 28302 63565 which supplies outdoor and camping gear, and with a little luck at all, you may be able to get everything under the one roof. Phone them first though. I have no idea how expensive they are for their produce, but I will warn you that you will likely pay a great deal more when you come south of the border. Negotiating the shopping centre is no problem, however negotiating the car park is quite another, as busy as Christmas given half the south venture up to shop these days, you will welcome the hills afterwards. Have a great trip and do post your findings on MV.
