FREEDOM THEY CAN'T TAKE AWAY: BRIDGE THEY CAN
Davie I agree with you and time has been cruel to me – so I could probably slip under the fence back into Scotland the Brave – unrecognised. We shall see.
I do not disagree with anything you write and I am mindful that in a few years the disruption will be forgotten and just as you describe, I and everyone else (at that confused age) will swear these edifices have been there since Queen Maebh – much as we shall swear the earth is flat and John Lennon was the Tsar of Russia, sort of thing ish nurse.
That written and conceded, we always need whistleblowers and evangelists to put manners on the baddies. You are right – the thing is a windmill (and doubtless they will find an imperative to build one of these too …) but if the enthusiasm to go round and round at full speed (entirely self-propelled) can in any way be dampened, I am up for it. If it means one ugly bridge doesn’t get built or one less useless track, I see that as some success.
It behoves us to look after the things that give us most pleasure and to remind ourselves what it is about the mountains we love - and should we need reminded…., it is the wildness and the absence of human interference.
A friend fell on ice on Sunday coming off the new Binnian track. I quote her message to me – “Slipped on the path leading off Binnian heading towards the Blue Lough bloody death traps those paths.”
Oh for a law suit……

McVeigh on Bens Gorm and Creggan
CaptainVertigo a day ago.
Another McVeigh gem. We are due some terrible summers: soon. And it will be great to look back and remember the wonderful summers of 2013 and 2014. McVeigh (and other film makers) have the memorie...

This hill has no name on any map I've seen, but the nearest townland seems to be Lettershinna so Lettershinna Hill is as good a name as any. Halfway along the road around the north flank of th...

On a fleeting visit today, via some well trod tracks, into the Mournes and on to a couple of popular if unimpressive tops, I see that not only have we invited an underclass into our domain but hav...

I approached Cahernageeha from the west, on a linear walk from Farraniaragh. From the latter's summit, a line of fence posts leads the way eastwards on grassy terrain, and shortly I picked up a gr...

Beenarourke: A brief Ring of Kerry diversion

Beenarourke looms over the large car park at a bend in the road between Waterville and Caherdaniel. It can be a busy place in high summer, with swarms of tourists taking snaps, or looking in baffl...
