Those thieving Cork Bas*#?&$ !
Apparently we may need to consider moving one of our mountains south a bit. Apparently an eagle eyed Donegal resident spotted this in a picture at Cork airport. And sure we've also stolen Rory Gallagher!

Pilgrimage : The Road To Santiago
Friday BBC2 9pm
MountainViews Irish Mountain Gathering preferred MC of choice - Ed Byrne - can be seen as he walks with friends (kind of) on a three part travelogue along the Camino di Santiago de Compostella . . . Be sure not to miss!
Building on the continued success of The Irish Mountain Gathering - there can be no reason (at time of going to press) that Ed will not have secured next year's most sought after position . . . MC of course!

Aidy's "A" pic.
Aidy's pic of the month ....... just sensationally good.
That is not to say mountainviews' potms aren't all fabulous but are often it seems constrained (not, I imagine always by the photographer), to a particular format.
Drama - tick. Composition - tick. Textbook exposure and other buttons - tick, tick.
Aidy's pic brings us all of these but they pale to a kind of insignificance against the sheer weight of emotion that drags on our bedazzled eyes.
Aidy's sees that and that's what makes the difference between a good pic and a truly great one.
First introduction to it and you just have to catch your frozen breath.
The ragged raw remains of the miners' school Gleniff. Ragged, but not forlorn. Ghosts of hope and innocence, aspirations, life and death. Today cold bones but once a vibrant, living thing.
The mountain stands behind its works. Icy. Impassive. Careless of what has been and what will be.
.... and as well as I can explain it, it will never come close to how good this pic really is.
Aidy. If I might just mark your homework. 10++.

Layer for MountainViews website
Hi Simon,
Producing slippy map tiles needs a few preparation. I created a virtual Linux machine to test the process and now I have to read the online documentation to understand the capabilities of mapnik, nik4, tilemill, postgis... Some questions are raised, I need to play first with data to estimate the work.

Re Emerald island GPS Map 2.0.9
Pazapas - David -
This looks great - well done. Would you be in a position to produce a layer for MountainViews website? That would be a complete pyramid of images rendered from Open Street Map and our data. Using Tilemill or similar.
We would be very interested in that.

Emerald island GPS Map 2.0.9
Emerald Island GPS Map has been updated. This new version includes a new feature : shaded mountain relief !
There is also few other little rendering changes. The link is still the same :
Files work on Oregon 650 and BaseCamp on MacOS. Windows installer works again for Basecamp & Mapsource.

New video: A winter walk in the Sheeffry Hill
Part one of a fantastic walk I had in the Sheeffrys about 3 weeks ago. It was a bright, sunny day and I took plenty of time to film and take photos. Thanks to my friend Wilderness giving me a lift, I started from the road pass E of Tawnyard and followed the ridgeline over to Barrclashcame before cautiously making my way down the steep S slopes to Doo Lough where I was parked. See track here: https://mountainviews.ie/track/report/3731/

"The old miners

Gleniff Horseshoe
Headed out last Sunday to climb Tievebaun, but the lightning put me off. Got some great views in the Gleniff Horseshoe as a consolation.
