Boirche's Chair - which Slievenaglogh?
Being interested in mountain folklore, I was very interested to come across a striking photo in David Kirk's book 'The Mountains of Mourne - A Celebration of a Place Apart' (p. 121) of a boulder on Slievenaglogh known as Boirche's Chair (Boirche is a legendary cow-herd who watches his cattle from the summit of Slieve Binnian according to E. Estyn Evans). The rock has a scooped-out face that makes it resemble a chair or throne. Problem is: there are two Slievenagloghs in Mourne, one west of Slieve Commedagh and the other further south across the Silent Valley from Slieve Binnian. Does anyone know which one is the site of Boirche's Chair? If you know it, and it's not easy to find, a grid ref or rough directions would also be appreciated. If the David Kirk who has contributed to this forum is the author of this book, maybe he could tell us himself. Many thanks, Paul

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 Gal...

A couple of pics from a frigid hike up Slievenamon that continued on to the NE top, Sheegouna.Amazing how even the most unremarkable hills are transformed by the white stuff.
