Making a Mountain out of a Tara Hill!!
With over 280 new hills recently added to the website and a new menu and listing system, I want to add my congratulations to all those at the helm, who have put in such sterling work to add to our knowledge of the hills.

I have many glowing words to say about the "Hill of Tara", indeed it has a personal resonance to me, having used it's imagery on my wedding invitation as we had our celebrations less than 6km from it. But Tara is a hill that fail's most of MV's criteria and although I welcome it's inclusion I think for a site such as this the fact that it is only being added at this stage is about right. When the campaign to have it added was being fought I did not see any of those campaigning offering to gather the data to back up it's inclusion? The one small bit of help that I gave in the recent additions was to gather the required info to actually have the hill added. In doing so I inadvertently missed that it was listed as Tara Hill and not Hill of Tara. This is the source of the error and one that I should be punished by the druids for! We all know that this is an error and one that I'm sure will be fixed in time, but this has been blown out of all proportion.

First world problems people! If this is all that we have to worry about then ain't life rosy.
