SEAN HOW IT'S DONE
I should like to use this medium to heartily congratulate Sean Nickell of the Wee Binnians Challenge Group for his blistering finishing time in Saturday’s Mournes 7X7s Challenge Walk. This is 7 tops over 700ms during the day, which Sean put away in barely over 6 hours. He was the first walker in and way ahead of many numbers of so-called runners. Sean claims (and I know he won’t mind me saying this) that it was I who inspired him to go faster. He will be amused to know that it is now he who inspires me to go slower. Sean is a mountainviewer and would probably pick this up if he weren’t running some marathon or another. Incidentally he has gone, in only a couple of years, from keen but gasping hillwalker to an unstoppable flying machine. And that should be an example to us all. At least, those of us under 40. Well done Seanie!

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.
