Improved, extended summit list to 150m
Context of comment:MountainViews is pleased to announce the release of a list of 150m summits in Ireland.

The list revises and improves the existing list of 400m+ summits and adds 208 summits under 400m with at least 150m of prominence. (Prominence is a measure of how much the summit sticks out above the surrounding ground.) Because of the prominence requirement the extra hills should all be interesting places to visit though not necessarily hard to climb. Since many are low there may well be access or other restrictions for some. Fourteen of the summits are on islands not connected to the land by bridges or regular ferries.

Other improvements include minor fixes to positions or heights, improvements to names and changes to the area names. The listing defines the possibility for each summit to have an area and now a sub area. For example summits in the "Achill/Corraun" area can be further subdivided into the "Achill" and "Corraun" areas.

The improved list can be viewed using the listing program in More | Resources (http://www.mountainviews.ie/mv/irl150setup.htm). In future this list will be incorporated into MountainViews main program following the necessary changes.

Message:I would like to thank the various people involved in working on this major extension including John Desmond, Brendan O'Reilly, Paul Tempan and Denise Jacques.
Additional points:If you believe that any changes are required to the list please let me know.
