MountainViews Gathering, 2014. Fri 21st Feb
Our main speaker will be Michael Fewer
He has told us
"In my illustrated talk I will outline forty years of enjoying walking throughout Ireland and Europe, showing how my writing expanded my walking horizons. I will talk about my walking explorations of mountains, rivers and islands of Ireland, together with my first tentative steps abroad."

Michael's background is as follows:
Michael Fewer enjoyed thirty years as a practicing architect and academic, and was a Fellow of the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland when he changed direction more than a decade ago to take up writing full-time. Since his first book was published in 1988 a further eighteen have appeared, dealing with matters such as walking, travel, history, architecture and the environment, including in 2002 The New Neighbourhood of Dublin with Maurice Craig, Doorways of Ireland in 2008 and Michael Fewer’s Ireland in 2012. He has contributed to radio and television programmes and written many articles over the last three decades on walking, environment and travels in Europe. His most recent book (with John Byrne) is T J Byrne: Nation Builder, published by South Dublin Libraries in 2013, and he is currently researching a book called Europe’s Western Fringe.

Peter Walker
"Easy. It's a word that crops up constantly in the musings of outdoorsfolk. It's sought out by the novice and sometimes sniggered at by the expert. It provides succour to the timid while being dispensed like confetti by the hard. Is 'easy' the most casually and wilfully misused word in hillwalking? Or is it, y'know, just like Sunday morning?"

Peter's background, with liberal use of artistic licence:
In 1972, a member of crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a hillwalking crime he didn't commit. He promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to Slieve Donard. Today, still wanted by the government, he survives as a member of Mountainviews. If you have a problem, if no one else is lanky enough, and if you can find him, maybe you can hire Peter Walker.
