I have only just come across the comments made by bleck cra with regards to mourne mountain rescue and an incident on the 30th September. I was the group leader involved, and I think that his critism of the mountain rescue team was uncalled for. I do remember having a conversation with him at the scene, he wason his way back to newcastle at the time and stopped to observe. The team in attendance were laughing and joking, not among themselves but with the injured party to lift her spirits and to detract from her pain. The reason we were there for over four hours was not the fault of the mmr team but of the person in the call centre. The person who took the call kept insisting on scrambling a helicopter to the scene even though they were told of poor visibility on a number of occasions. the mmr team came as soon as they were alerted, or as quickly as conditions would allow. When in attendance the three man team were very thorough and professional. the injured party was wrapped in a waterproof survival bag, (see attached photo) and treated with the utmost respect. The injured party is a 64 year old lady who was in training for a charity trek in aid of southern area hospice services. She has since had to pull out of the event. I have spoken to her from this day and in no way did she think mmr were in any way but professional.

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. ...

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...
