On Grass
Slieve Lamagan in the Mournes. No redeeming features. In fact no features. At all. So, just like Newry. On the road to somewhere better.
I see the dead hand of the Mourne Heritage Trust - their latest oeuvre slashing across the mountain like God was from the Gorbals. Best avoided. The old track is good.

My handle on what is fashion on the hills has clearly come unstuck. Briefly I got entangled in a frantic buzz that turned out to be the Mourne Marathon.
What's with the tight shorts and the socks your great Grandfather would have worn?
Everywhere - like extras from a Bavarian sausage commercial.
And another what's with - what's with the maps 'round the necks?
(Now I know a very, very, very, very important person on the website carries his maps thusly and for the sake of brotherhood and bonhomie I shall call it an idiosyncrasy rather than the hallmark of a mad scout leader or junior Geography teacher.)
But what's with it? These are mountain people, marathon people - and continually looking at it like it might suddenly change into to a 1-inch-to-the-mile of the moon.

A friend from Facebook and this site advised me the other day that a mate of his was taking one of his issue and the dog into the Mournes and enquired where would be better places to let the animal loose. C'est a dire nowhere near the sheep.
I gave him a list of options, every square inch of which today seemed to be bagged by sheep - so I hope his mate is not now currently picking lead shot out of the critter's be-hind.
