The Triumphal Procession (Expand pics)
Congratulations!
Heartiest congratulations to Simon Byrne on his great achievement.
I had hoped to be there personally but the moment clashed with the annual gathering of my clan in Athlone so I missed the great event. It is like NOT having been in the GPO in 1916. Simon hasn't just demolished most of the Lists in one year: along the way he has set down some truly remarkable routes, as we can see from the Tracks he uploaded. Reaching his goal is a testament not just to his physical stamina but also to his mental toughness. There MUST have been times when he asked himself "Am I mad to be doing this?" (truth to tell I ask myself most days when I have parked the car and am about to put on my boots!). But he kept going. His achievement singles him out as one of the most employable people in the country - focused, committed, relentless, clever (look at the routes) and very likely to successfully complete any project he takes on.
One aspect of the journey that I can't comprehend is how Simon managed to avoid injury over a twelve month period. And I don't necessarily mean dramatic injuries of the "falling off " variety: I'm thinking sprains, pulled muscles and ligaments, sore back , wonky knees and the like. These are the kinds of injuries that tend to persist unless the patient rests, and there is really no evidence that Simon ever rested.
Well done Simon! Your success will travel with you to the end of your days. Thank you for sharing the adventure with us.
Has anyone told the newspapers?

Westaston Hill: The top?
Barry 2 days ago.
I think the highest point is likely about 175 metres in a WSW direction from the mast. I'm judging this from aerial photography and DTM which shows a rocky outcrop in a small forest clearing. DTM ...

Barranisky: Barniskea or Barniskey

Might be worth adding that Ballymoyle Hill might be more appropriate name for this height. Called that in Coillte records. Whilst Barranisky is spelt thus on OS six inch maps, note that Hall Nevil...
