Tara Credited
Ah Tara again. Isn't it interesting how it provokes such robust discussion. Trailtrekker even lets us know that he used its symbolism in his wedding stationery and shows us a picture. I am glad it has been resolved: in its favour - which of course is what some of us were baying for.
Not sure though about Trailtrekker's observation "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". As a protagonist in that debate I myself contributed nothing (if that's the way we want to put it) other than bringing it to our focused attention which clearly (and rightly so) it still has - but I believe MountainViewer maremac far from not contributing data, was the prime mover in the discussion and also the prime provider of the initial if not most of the information the site wanted to start its interrogation. I hope we shall give her credit for that.

Visited in 2014. There's a sandy beach and a solid pier with slipway and a picnic table facing the mainland. The road from the pier all the way thru the village is a robust concrete one, but it's ...

Surprisingly Donegal islands have a very good mobile internet reception, sometimes better than in an office in Dublin.

Now living furth of Scotland and getting to know the Irish hills. If you come across a Scottish hill Walker with dodgy knees and walking sedately, stop and say hello.
