Flaccid Are The Geeks
What Lilliputian breed of a critter seeks to further restrain Nature in the last remnants of her glory? An uncrossable river is an affront to this Moses, arrested by flowing water, unable to reach the Promised Land. "Who will rid me of this troublesome torrent?" What bondage will satisfy this Canute? Why nothing less than a Bridge! Ten thousand euro would have leapt from a scabbard to quell this niagarous cascade. But to no avail. Our febrile governors are otherwise engaged, bearing gifts to the Greeks. And so like Moses, and the merry ole Duke, he marchs them up the hill, and the Red Sea (more brown then red?) fails to part. Quel surprise! They know the river is there. They worry about it. They offer ten grand to effeminate her. They fail. More worry and angst. And then they allow themselves to be entrapped by her wiles. And they have to be rescued. Wouldn't now be a good time to stop digging? To accept Nature and to respect it? My Presidency will eschew bridge building and all other manisfestations of timidity on the hills. ‘Mo lándícheall a dhéanamh ar son sliabhmhuintir na hÉireann gan muileann gaoithe, gan bóithre agus gan droichid'. The wild Ireland that I dreamed of would not be hermanetically sealed. Its rivers would run free.

Cupidstown Hill: Enhance this with a visit to Oughterard
Bunsen7 a day ago.

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...
