Nowt as strange as folk. He stood on the top of the stile at Crannoge, top of the Bloody Bridge track. From Chimneyrock, I kept him in my sights. Unshiftable from his post, despite endless fat Christmas stomachs squeezing past. He was small, slightly round and with a diamond sparkle in his eyes. A brogue from the Coronation Street School of English, introduced his intended route. Now this would have included the top of the tors on Bunion other than he had done them before, the top of the tors on Barney other than he would do them another time. So today he would just go to the top of this one and then to the top of that one. We would meet again. This was announced at the top of the stile. A loop around and over Commedagh took me to Donard. And sure enough, there he was, craning up at the trig point on the top of the Water Board wall. “No way to the top,” he snuffled and gathered himself for his next ascent to “Comicduck” (I guessed this was Commedagh) now that he had done “Donald”. Then he got Slieve Binnian wrong too - “Stob Binnian” and suddenly I realised I was in the presence of magic. “I have been out three nights and three days now,” he smiled straight at me. “I do this every year around now. It’s the light.” Binnian Ireland, Stob Binnian Scotland and doubtless every other high top in the Celtic Diaspora. Every year around now. The light that dies – and the light that lives. What secrets it could reveal. If only we could take the splinters out of our eyes. South, in a landscape of pewter grey, an unexplainable pool of yellow illuminated North Dublin. “Very strange,” I thought.
