HIGH KING OF TARA BUT NOT HIGH ENOUGH
Context of comment:"...... a pound of sausages, bread, milk, eggs, bananas ......
What do you mean there are different kinds of lists? Hills lists? Strange - why would you have lists of hills? What do you mean it's just a kind of a thing? An idiosyncrasy?
Fair enough. Someone called mountainviews has billions of them? OK I'll give them a look.
Mountainviews, click click, ok here we are. Looks good. Now let me think, what would be the most important hill in Ireland? Ehh ..... of course - Tara! The Hill of Tara!
Click click. Click click. Click click. Click click. Funny - no Hill of Tara. Hmmmm. Let's see. Billions is right. Every shggin thing higher than a molehill. But nope, no Tara.
What's that you say - someone else was asking about this and it's because its dominance isn't prominent enough or its provenance isn't ominous enough or something - sure who makes this up?
... and here's me thinking the Hill of Tara was selected by our ancestors for Ireland's most important ancient ceremonies, particularly because of its dominance, prominence and its ominousnessness over the surrounding countryside and a 360o view to a completely flat, unobstructed horizon.
Sheez - these mountainviews people must know something we don't. Tch - silly old Kings of Tara."

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.
