"Dressed as Lamagan - stage right" from Bleck Cra Contract pics
Picture: Dressed as Lamagan - stage right (Contract pics)

A Clothes Call
“You have the body of a 30 year old” she simpered. Indeed I have - of a 30 year old warthog. But no: apparently standards have slipped to an all-time low. Happy Days, but on the hills, the kit stays on. Everywhere else, at the first hint of horizon, out come the stomachs, straining on their contents. Slieve Lamagan is a natural contralto. She is wide ‘round the hips, wanting in the brainbox and with a chest of desperate proportions. You can tell at a glance that she suffers fools not at all gladly and if her southern ascent is anything to go by, is not averse to a bit of S. The Mourne novice comes upon her, clambering off a raggedy Binnian, to imprint forever that breath-taking vista from Bearnagh to Donard. It was in these quarters, the question of deshabille revealed itself to me. A tad too previous on the lip of a 10’ drop and off I went, headlong into a clatter of G1 granite, stripping swathes of flesh from the knave to the chaps and a piece of shin never to be returned and stuffing a couple of fingers en route. In these circumstances, the young respond; the older and wiser lie still and wait for the pain to subside. Two "un-restrained" matrons blocked the sun. “He’s dead, he’s dead, he’s dead, ….. bemoaned the first. “Ohhhh nooooh,” moo-ed the second. (A small boy was asked if he liked his new teacher, she with the V-neck sweaters. “She’s nice, but sometimes you can see her lungs.”) Suddenly there were lungs, lungs and more lungs. “He must be dead” and then it occurred to me, perhaps I was. And there it is: when there’s a case for X there’s always another one for D.

Foardal: Beyond a shadow of a doubt
Colin Murphy a week ago.
The French writer Maupassant used to say he had lunch in the Eiffel Tower every day because it was the only place in Paris that he couldn't see the thing. A similar view might be taken of Foardal,...

The Beara-Breifne Way Day 6
mlmoroneybb 6 days ago.
Thanks to all for making the weekends on the Beara-Breifne Way so special. We have completed 187Km in 7 Day?s walking walk, Len: 30.3km, Climb: 781m, Area: Paps/Derrynasaggart (Ireland)

Summit Summary
Foardal: Simple approach from NW
Collaborative entry Last edit by: Colin Murphy a week ago.
If you want to do this in isolation, the simplest route is from the car park at V882790, and then heading SE directly up the heathery slope for 1km. The summit itself is a broad heathery mound.

Collaborative entry Last edit by: Colin Murphy a week ago.
