Mr.Leathy, I Salute You
Isn't the web wonderful when it works? Welcome Aprilla! Congratulations on having edited a very successful and interesting documentary, and thank you for taking the trouble to reply to my little piece. I was in the same spot (on Carrauntoohil) a few days ago, and when the mist cleared suddenly, and I saw where I was, I almost ...well, you know...(and I didn't have replacement underpants either!) The notion that I would have dislocated a knee half way up the final slope and have to be winched up to a helicopter - well, it just dosen't bear thinking. Imagine swaying over the Benkeeragh Ridge at the end of a wire! I do hope that Connor will waive his right to silence and tell us the whole story. Do not feel stung that I expressed a little horror at your undergraduate sang froid ( great coolness and composure under strain) and joie de vivre (hearty or carefree enjoyment of life) : that was but a genuflection in the direction of health and safety. Best wishes to you all! You seem like a fine bunch! What a day it would be if we could condescend Carrauntoohil (or at least patronise it)!
