HIGH TIME
New Camera; stupid old cameraman. So alas today, no award-winning pics but perhaps a few word ones. The pathos ripped like the farewells of a favourite shirt. “I am the most miserable man on the planet,” he bemoaned and righted himself in the mud like a drunken carthorse. His head bearing sponge-soaked headgear, nodded like a newborn’s. Mud covered his rain-diminished frame from his toenails to his prison haircut. Thing is he wasn’t any of these but a man alight with the joy of a day in the company of friends – from Beg to Cove to Lamagan to Downshire pub, hot soup, beer and craic. Happy times for Jackill and our friends amongst my beloved Mournes. Other than this jaunt being afore-arranged, none of us would have ever ventured past the door but spent the day inside with broadsheets and eventless television. Such wonderful company – mviewers dhmiriam, the Jackill and rosie-c; aspirants, the amazing Mr dhmiriam Tom Byrne and fascinating newbie the mercurial Majella Moyles. Cork, Portlaoise, Nenagh, Cavan, Armagh. One place, one time, one unassailable memory. It pissed out of the heavens from dawn ‘til dusk; impenetrable cloud rose from 500’; and the wind fired galvanised raindrops at soft human faces like buckshot. Two Scavenger Walks back, a lovely lady from Portlaoise, troubled, joined the bold band who are the Scavvies. Less than an hour in, she had drawn out and embraced each of these black troubles from her old kit bag – and she was going home. Gentle Jackill carefully took them from her and one by one broke them over his knee. This girl whose fears of everything once threatened her getting above sea level, today emerged from the mouth of the firebreathing Devil’s Coachroad gully, corners scraped and confident. At my heels and radiant.

Cupidstown Hill: Enhance this with a visit to Oughterard

Yes, perhaps this is not a very noteworthy hill. Cupidstown and Saggart Hill represent largely forest topped outliers of the Dublin/Wicklow range split from higher summits to the East by the N81. ...

Summit Summary
Robber's Pass Hill: Minor heathery lump. Overcivilised and underwhelming.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: simon3 a week ago.
This oddly named hill is more a very minor heathery bump incorporated into the system of tracks laid out by the Wicklow Mountains National Park. It can be reached from any of the western car-parks...
