Turlough Hill
A colleague who was an engineer in the ESB says the engineer in charge of the Turlough Hill project did indeed have a son called Turlough. However, he "sold" the name for the project on the basis that it would be similar to an artificial turlough. See http://www.tcd.ie/Botany/turloughs/description.html for more about the feature. Just last week there seemed to be a natural one north-east of the track from Tonelagee to Mall Hill - at least there was a substantial body of water that the map told me didn't exist (cause of an anxious moment or two) but maybe it was just a puddle.
Not really a clear enough day for photos but I'll try uploading one and see how it turns out.

Truskmore: The Height of Sligo

The Dartry Mountains are among the most distinctive in Ireland, so it's unfortunate that their highest hill is one of the least distinctive in the range. Once one gets away from the signature stee...
