STANDS WITH A FIST
A walking companion of mine, after a strenuous day in the Mournes complained about the final short ascent from the Brandy Pad track beneath Commedagh up on to the Saddle.
Well he won't ever have to do it again because the white bags of rocks, untimely ripped from somewhere else have been landed on the track.
We can expect fairy steps and painted handrails soon, wee powdered pink girls in pigtails and their fat, loud parents in tow.

It was never to do with ticking off summits; never to do with the mountain. It was always about Cowboys and Indians.
Soon in the Mourne Mountains there will be no Cowboys and Indians because there will be no place for them to hide; no crossing the Amazon because there will be a bridge; no scaling the Heights of Abraham because someone will have put steps in.

The magic of the Mourne Mountains is being dug, hammered and concreted out.
So they become a "resource", an "amenity" to be spoken of in the same breath as community centres - or the dump.
It must be what we want because it is what we have got.

"So Tonto, with your shell-like stuck in the builder's sand, what do you hear?"
"Palefaces Kemo Sabe - a thousand palefaces coming this way."
"When my faithful friend?"
"Every Saturday."

Westaston Hill: The top?
Barry 13 hours ago.
I think the highest point is likely about 175 metres in a WSW direction from the mast. I'm judging this from aerial photography and DTM which shows a rocky outcrop in a small forest clearing. DTM ...

Barranisky: Barniskea or Barniskey
Barry 13 hours ago.
Might be worth adding that Ballymoyle Hill might be more appropriate name for this height. Called that in Coillte records. Whilst Barranisky is spelt thus on OS six inch maps, note that Hall Nevil...
