SOME VIEWS ON MOURNE HERITAGE TRUST WORK
I thought we might like to read some of the comments that have come my way about the construction work in the Mournes:

> Is this the improvements? That will wash out worse than what was there will it not??

> I went across that bridge a couple of months ago, I was gutted, it is horrendous looking. If you can't get across at that point, sure you have no reason to go any further!!!

> Find it hard to reason why the MHT think this bridge was necessary.

> That bridge is like giving the Mona Lisa a magnolia paint touch up!

> I'm from Belgium so I'm just a tourist in your country, one of those folk these people think they have to lay the paths out for, and doing so damaging the hills and mountains far more than any group of Hillwalkers ever can do over time...

> These tracks have completely sullied the Mournes. Similar things are going on in Wicklow. It is highly stupid to be luring the unwary onto the hills along these silly pathways.

> I'd sooner see a muddy track than something that looks like a s.chlocky patio laid by wide boys.

Meenteog South-East Top: Really...when is a mountain a mountain
muddyboots 12 hours ago.
I am sure like many of you, especially simoburn, that the addition of the Arderin Begs while technically needed, added loads more summits to climb. This one is, well, a real hard sell. I was tryin...
