Devil's Bit Shooting, or not?
Many of us have discovered the gentle pleasures of the Shannon summit area so were concerned when the following came our way:

could you have a look at our facebook page which is notodevilsbitshooting and also to the devils bit shooting range.this is a venture being promoted by 2 individuals.our area is used extensively by hillwalkers and we would be delighted will any help you could offer to stop this idea.

I googled for notodevilsbitshooting but couldn't find anything. If anyone knows anything about this, please do let us know. Can I say however there MAY be two sides to the story. Recently I was in a forest near Slievereagh in the Ballyhouras. The area was probably more accessible to walkers as a result of a clay-pigeon shooting business in the forest. While noisy in one specific area, the racket didn't travel that far in the trees. I think my attitude to a development would be "it depends" which is why I would like to see more info on this. Same with pylons or wind turbines.

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.
