See the Sights
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.

Now living furth of Scotland and getting to know the Irish hills. If you come across a Scottish hill Walker with dodgy knees and walking sedately, stop and say hello.

Surprisingly Donegal islands have a very good mobile internet reception, sometimes better than in an office in Dublin.
