Can you see the 2 planks? (Expand pics)
COMMERAGHS ABRIDGED
Just when you think you have exhausted a great debate, the littlest thing can come along and start it all up again.
Just to remind us, the debate was that building things (roads and such) in amongst mountains is 1. a good thing or 2. a bad thing.
The argument for it as a good thing is that is proves a good use of time, effort and money and as a bad thing, that it proves a bad use of time, effort and money.
Anyway next time the heavens have opened and emptied the entire water content of the planet on Ireland you will know that mviews committee official and Geography Teacher Jackill and yours truly have arranged to do a walk (swim) somewhere in Ireland’s hills. It has become a routine and Saturday was no exception. Completely soaked to the gussets, he and I traipsed around (I believe) the Commeraghs in virtual darkness and merciless howling rain.
An occasional remission in this apocalypse, suggested that these may in fact be rather pleasant hills and defo worth a return visit on a dry day.
Anyhoo …. various trails therein are now studded with directions posts in indestructible reconstituted plastic waste. Time a half – a squillion years – and some indication of human-with-hammer activity. New gates - good. New walks signposted - good/OK. New planks: excuse me…? Yep, why like Collossus astride 2 continents, 2 planks of wood have been strategically placed across a small puddle to facilitate … who knows – the escape of a thousand performing ants. A roaring fire and pint of Guinness would have been a better deal.
Anyway, there you have it – the Commeraghs – now completely waterproof.
Enjoy .......
