IRLOGI
May I add my heartiest congratulations to Simon on winning the IRLOGI Award. When you look at the resources employed by other winners (Environmental Protection Agency and various County Councils, for example), and realise that Simon has constructed and maintained this site from FRESH AIR, it gives you some sense of the breadth of his achievement. I often ask myself where can you find a community based website giving enthusiasts the kind of rich and layered data and analysis that we get here? There is really nothing like it., not just in the hillwalking realm, but in any sport.
Simon, what a resource you have created by putting the structures in place to draw in the experiences of thousands of walkers. You have patiently encouraged us all to add to the work, to be accurate, and to find new places and fresh angles. Whenever I find myself having a really special day on the hills, I invariably think "Thank you Simon . Were it not for your painstaking efforts, I would not be here".

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.

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