"Meelbeg somewhere in there" from Bleck Cra Contract pics
Picture: Meelbeg somewhere in there (Contract pics)

RE-ROUTED
Here, in the North, there is a question on everyones lips. No, its not will Obama pull Bushs invaders out of Afghanistan; neither is it will Iran reduce Israel to the dust that is Solomons temple; nor is it will the entire wealth of the world make the slightest difference to hated Haiti. The question that scorches the lips of pundits across this state is .. how does Irish Robinson like her sausages or something. While cackling hysterically through one of these dustbins calling itself a newspaper, I stumbled upon a piece relating the story of the Mourne Mountain Rescue scooping a caz off Meelbeg at the end of last week. Long beards on this website will recall the Cra once savaging the Mourne Rescue for what in his opinion was an imperfect operation. The Rescue defended itself vigorously and the matter sank into Dundrum Bay. My prob with the Mourne Rescue is I dont like them however if they are saving your life it hardly matters if you think they have lovely eyes. Anyway, implicit in the piece, some banana and his mate took his free-with-gravy garden tent up on to Meelbeg in the worse conditions Ireland has seen in decades and nearly died. It was dark, merciless winds reduced the tent to rags and sticks; then in some push for survival, he bust his leg and gave his mate the chance to do what he probably had been wanting to do for hours ie phone the Rescue. Up they come an hour and a half on to Meelbeg with full kit. Fab! Two hours off in unspeakably difficult conditions drifting, ice, a landscape of springs, holes, rocks and endless wet. Spectacular! For mountain rescues, this is as good as it gets and today MMR, you have my respect.
