Re County High Points
paulocon mentions that the County Top list in www.simonstewart.ie differs from the County Top list that Paul Clements describes in his book 'The Height of Nonsense'

I've checked both lists and there are three differences as follows:


SimonStewart - Truskmore

Paul Clements - Slieve Anierin


Simon Stewart - Slieve Beagh East

Paul Clements - Eshnabrack


Simon Stewart - Sawel

Paul Clements - Mullaclogha

It must be said that Paul Clements didn't take a very scientific approach to working out the high points - he enjoyed asking everyone he met where they thought the high point of their county was! He makes an interesting point that the summit of Slieve Beagh actually lies in Fermanagh and that if you come across the border into Monaghan "we find a point called Eshnabrack at 1190 feet" (362.7 metres) which is the highest point in Monaghan.

I would tend to stick with the list on simonstewart.ie. Apparently Mountainviews will soon have the County Tops displayed too which i think will really open up the debate!
