Yes V-sign: bullseye within a bullseye - spare us from these poltroons with the placentae pinned to their backs. Water! Sure at the first sign of drouthiness, a real man slashes his wrists and drinks his own blood. Let’s exterminate them all - along with might I suggest: walking-pole bearers and what’s with the 1 pole - why not cut off 1 leg and save on trouser material too; men with earrings and sunglasses although men with 1 earring and 1 sunglass should be spared; everyone who says “Good Morning” when they mean “how ya going?” or “what about ye?”; women over 40 with their hair in bunches; anyone who ignores you when you say “how ya going?”; fell runners; mountain bikers; Englishmen; fathers with veins standing out on their necks while their lone child tramps happily and comfortably behind; people who speak while ascending the south side of Commedagh; any two people of the same age holding hands; young fat blokes carrying a bottle of water; campers; anyone who says Chamonix, Dordogne, St Trop or Ben Nevis; people who complain about the weather; Englishmen - you can’t do away with enough of them; people wearing skip caps; unless they arrive by private helicopter, anybody wearing anything to do with the Southern hemisphere; anyone wearing a rugby shirt - don’t worry, they’re only social members; the same goes for anti-vivisection slogans - the real ones live in caves. Contrarily, embrace everyone in boil-washed grey; kiss everyone with boots older than you - regardless of their sexual orientation; nuzzle up to anyone who uses the “f” word to describe Englishmen; and anyone who sits like an aborigine and stares across the glen and makes a noise like a warm pig, scoop them up, buy a barge and breed hundreds more grunters.

Westaston Hill: The top?
Barry 18 hours ago.
I think the highest point is likely about 175 metres in a WSW direction from the mast. I'm judging this from aerial photography and DTM which shows a rocky outcrop in a small forest clearing. DTM ...

Barranisky: Barniskea or Barniskey
Barry 19 hours ago.
Might be worth adding that Ballymoyle Hill might be more appropriate name for this height. Called that in Coillte records. Whilst Barranisky is spelt thus on OS six inch maps, note that Hall Nevil...

Aidan thanks. Good to hear from you. There's a kind of accuracy in your translation even although there isn't. Still, it's close and ants aren't.There are essentially 3 titles for hills in Irish.S...
