Stone Faced and Stultified
Ahh Kirkie, yes. The road to Hell (aka the new track up Donard) …. is paved by mentals. Yet such cynicism sticks sideways in my craw because I know it’s all being done for the best - or some swampy’s idea of the best. Sure you’re never going to fall because you’re never going to be anywhere near the thing. It is a clean disaster from here to there and back and serves only the purpose of seating fat blokes from urban ganglands with their wide women and narrow weans, long enough to have a feg before its time to get aff and back in till the pub in Newcastle. Maybe see my contribution of 04-11-15. What about we get our hands on some commercial explosives (I live within an hour of North Belfast, Ballymena, Bangor, Banbridge, East Belfast, Lisburn, so at today’s date this will be easy enough) and blow the effing thing off the face of the planet. This of course will cause infinitely more damage that the enthusiasts are trying to stave off, but don’t worry, they won’t give us any bother, y’know, with the ballaclavies and all. Dear God, I promise never to be bad again: please give me my Slieve Donard back again, the way it was - and not that I’m asking but it might be OK if you took the people making the steps thing and dropped them in Roumania and let them build things there.
