NI place-name database back online
Those of you that walk in the North may be interested to know that OSNI has brought the Northern Ireland place-name database back online at: http://www.placenamesni.org It was previously available as "Pointer", but was taken down about 18 months ago while work was done to integrate various geographical services. The database can be searched for placenames in the six counties using a text search or through maps. The highest level up-to-date map viewable is the 1:10,000 series. As well as current OSNI maps, historical maps at 6" to the mile from 1830 and 1850 can be viewed. At present the text search only finds townland names, but other place-names will be made available later. The place-name data is a subset of the database of the NI Place-Name Project, based at Queen's University, Belfast. It is in draft format for the present.

We were lucky to see a white tailed eagle gliding gracefully over Eirk Lough before before coming to rest on a rock, which provided the opportunity to capture a pic of the rarely seen bird of prey...

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,...

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.

The first flurry of snow here in Armagh. A biting wind. Antenna whiskers taste the chill air and the prospect of picture postcard winter days. In no time at all, the Cairngorm Mountain Rescue will...
