Change to list of mountains.
Context of comment:MountainViews uses a list of summits of at least 500m. The list is in need of improvement and here is our first revision.
Message:One accidentally included summit has been deleted and three extra summits have been added (Knocknahunna, Mullaghcarbatagh and Ott). The area names have been significantly renamed. For example there is now the area of Breifne which includes Cuilcagh and neighbouring summits. Previously these were illogically grouped with mountains in Sligo.

Various summit names have been changed for a whole variety of reasons ranging from correcting typos to using more correct forms. An example of the latter is the change from Ahinkeen to Caoinkeen. However the previous names used in MV have been recorded where relevant.

For many summits there is now extra information on the origin of the name and notes about it.

The name of the county / counties that the summit is in is now recorded for the first time.
The database has been amended to include the name in both English and Irish where available and in future versions of the software these will both appear.
Most of these changes have been made by Paul Tempan who will be writing a document describing the list. Far too often names have appeared on lists and maps without discussion. Paul's document is intended to allow consultation about the list.
Additional points:Many of these changes (Ott for example) have been put in at the request of members and MV relies on the members to look at the revised list and point out any errors or omissions.
