Confused ! Where is the top of Slieve Maan?
When reading up recently on a number of MV listed tops in Wicklow which I was considering visiting I found the entries for Slieve Maan somewhat confusing. There are two tops shown on the OSi Sheet 62 and the Healy 1:25000 Map of Glenmalure, each at 550m. On reading the various posts by members it appeared that the choosen top by MV's was the one to the SW and not that to the NE. However on checking the Grid Ref. listed T0839588733 I was surprised to find that this reference was in fact for the NE Top. While I agree that the old pre-metric half inch map shows the SW top as the higher by three feet I note that the latest OSi Sheet 62 (4th Edition) highlights the NE top as the summit. Furthermore the Short Summary suggests a route up which leads to the NE Top as the high point of Slieve Maan but the introductory comments advise that, while there are two summits, the SW one is taken as the true summit. Given the GR listed by MV on the web page and in the recently published MV Guide to Ireland's Mountain Summits is for the NE Top I assume this is in fact the favoured location. If this is the case and in the interests of avoiding any continuing confusion for other MV readers some amendment to the entries for Slieve Maan on the web site would be helpful. Has anyone any view on this?
