Trigpointing Ireland
My love of hill-walking was recently re-kindled when I found myself with much more free time on my hands. I started off with easy walks because I was very unfit. During my first proper walk in the Belfast Hills a tour of Divis, Black Mountain and Black Hill, I discovered Triangulation Pillars. I decided there and then that I would seek them out to give purpose to my walks. I had become a Trigpoint Enthusiast by accident. I registered with TrigpointingUK but quickly discovered that it does not officially support Irish Trigpoints. To cut a long story short, I decided to create a site that did, thus Trigpointing Ireland was established.

Trigpointing Ireland is a personal website. It was first uploaded mid Nov 2006. It is not fancy but hopefully will fill a niche for Trigpoint Enthusiasts in Ireland. It needs registered users to help supply data, reports and photographs. I have already noted several references to TPs on this site, and at least one picture. Can you help? Even if you are not an enthusiast, it only takes a few moments to waypoint a TP with your GPSr and take a note of the Flush Bracket number (a picture is even better).

If I get any encouragement at all, Trigpointing Ireland will be developed further. The first step is for you to register as a user and we will take it from there.
