TARA-ED WITH THE SAME BRUSH
Context of comment:Good man Conor - good to see a big hitter in here on the Taraboomdeeay question. Reference Spancil, the thing is though that Tara is not just called a hill. It is actually ... a hill.
Can we just look at your "logical" and your "criteria" points?
Both of these descriptions predicate on something that has been invented in any case - apparently by us as mountainviews, although I cannot recall anyone asking me anything. You?
So it follows that if the Emperor has no clothes you can call them anything you like, green, blue, yellow .....
So all it needs is for the parameters to be shifted from one invented anchor point to another.
I am not suggesting we call the Atlantic Ocean a hill but I think the Hill of Tara is defo a hill.
So that is my proposal: that we (sic) just shift the goalposts an inch or two - they are our goalposts after all.
What does mountainviews think about that?
To be honest, I myself have little interest in how long how tall how whatever a hill is and I suspect I am not on my own but the Tara thing is so glaring that it demands attention - if only to spare my embarrassment as a mountainviewer who apparently thinks Tara is not a hill.
