@Hugh Mangan
Hi Hugh. I suggest a circuit from Taylor's Three Rock pub. From Taylor's walk along the southern boundary of Marlay Park, then follow the Wicklow Way up to Kilmashoge car park. Conti use to follow the Wicklow Way to the col between Fairy Castle and Tibradden. From the col head up to Fairy Castle, then take the north track down past the big communication aerials on the north side of Fairy Castle. Head down to the Three Rock car park then road and path to Taylor's Three Rock Hotel. A few hours at a good pace. Nearly all path, road, forest track and good track.

Night Time Hike
Hi - can anyone can suggest a good night time walk in and around Dublin/North Wicklow? Looking for a looped walk or an out and back. Moderate difficulty, a few hours approx, as doing with my kids (early teens). I know I can probably do any of the marked walks but there be some more suitable, with better views etc. Thanks!

Covid 19 & 2KM Radiu
Great question moggy40

Can we assume that this 2k must be centred on a regular dwelling place.

Covid 19 & 2KM Radius
Given that we are all restricted to a 2KM radius for exercise activity, where in Ireland would be the best place to be located, your starting point for your walk must be within your radius, and be able to bag as many tops as possible

Considering changing email address?
Recently Eir, the Irish telco, have announced that their previously "free" email service with "eircom.net" domain name will now have a monthly charge. Many are surprised or annoyed at this some even outraged. Email should be "free", right? Many immediately want to change their email address to something different that is apparently "free". However providing email isn't free particularly with the need to filter email against spam or phishing attacks and with the increasing volume of traffic.

You need ask yourself, who is paying for your email and who is the customer? "Free" services read your email and note who you are communicating with. This information is valuable and is often sold for marketing and political purposes. It is as if all your paper mail was intercepted through a service that photocopied the content and sold the information to the highest bidders.

MountainViews isn't a privacy pressure group and so we don't have reams of evidence to hand about this, but here is just one link that I came across last week: https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/pkekmb/free-email-apps-spying-on-you-edison-slice-cleanfox

If you use a "free" service you and society will pay for it. Your private information will become your email suppliers product to be used at best for intrusive marketing targetting but at worst, far worse, think Stasi. If you remain with a supplier such as Eircom.net then this is subject to European GDPR and you remain the customer.

There are other options such as outlined here blacknight.blog/thoughts-on-eir-charging-for-free-email-and-the-importance-of-owning-your-online-identity.html?mc_cid=ffbcac062e&mc_eid=065bb85b97'Blacknight who have an article here.

For a free option that reputedly doesn't sell your information you could try gmx.com. We understand this is based in Germany and so you are protected by GDPR.

MountainViews will accept whatever email address you choose to set which you can do using the Settings option at top right.
