Meelmore Highs
by Bleck Cra  3 Sep 2014
Meelmore is an odd critter. To all intents and purposes, she is fairly dull, although she can surprise you with postcard views along the ridge to Donard and in the winter, her Eastern flank is a glistening must. She is a big hill and so, inspired, the cartographer entitled her, “Meelmore”. She is neighbour to the more ostentatious Bearnagh and sibling of her smaller sister - yup you got it: “Meelbeg”.

Shall I relate a tale of explicitness from the outset? Of course I shall. Some balmy summers ago, I and the bumblebees were exploring this big warm earth mother. Atop Meelmore, there is (as on Donard) a somethingorother at the elbow of the wall, a stone structure with a roof and the smell of a bad pub. I was skirting this folly, enroute to Spellack, when I noticed that she, naked as God made her (and he certainly did) had him (pale, thin and nervous), pinned to said edifIce. As her, he was birthday bare other than his ankles, whose modesty was covered by his kecks. When he saw me, he drew said kecks up so hard they nearly came off over his head and then stood catatonic, with them up to his armpits, which as we all know only makes matters worse. She, was doing a kind of female Lee Evans: right no left no right no …. and so she stopped, like a child sprayed with freezing water: arms out and fingers flapping like skylark wings. Dull old Meelmore ……. and she addressed me through a meteor shower of giggles, squeals and snorts, “you should have bells on your feet”. Clucked I in true Ulster disapproval “and you girl, should have bells on your toes.” And so the shaky beginnings of the Meelmore High Club. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/138/comment/1327/
