If proof were needed that the mountainview FROM the article is worth 10 times that OF the article, it is Slievemartin. In the SW of the magnificent Mourne Mountains (further and you drop into Carlingford Lough), it presents no redeeming features; in fact it presents no features at all other than the jetsam from a half-demolished communications tower and some stone or other to go and see, for those of us who like to go and see stones. Excepting a pretty jaunt off, through faery woodland, it exhibits no more than you expect from the fringe of the flock: woolly, cranky and not the brightest star in the firmament. “Beauty” is a word devalued by over and untrained use, but if it could be used only once, it could be used to describe the land and town scapes that cuckoon dull old Slievemartin. From the infamous and discomfiting Narrow Waters, through Warrenpoint and Rostrevor, a riviera of natural and domestic wealth and sophistication confidently flows. “Riviera” - there’s another one of these words. For those of us who have rotissed on the Cote D’Azur, in the reign of la Bardot, there can be no other Riviera - but this coastline, yes this Northern Irish coastline, is about as close as you can get: craggy promontaries against sunlit skylines, bold sharp seas to different worlds, heather-clad foothills; him and her sauntering from one sophisticated café and restaurant to the next, while Jennifer and Geoffrey carelessly go about for the millionth time today. Lee Ho. Genuinely European towns quite beyond the perspective of the entrenched North and increasingly revered by the discerning South - which is not really surprising, as from the scrapyard summit of said Slievemartin, Carlingford and Rostrevor are no farther apart than lovers across a table.
