Ah sure, you never have to wait long. Currently scouring the Mournes for a fitness level suitable for a Women’s Cancer Charity Challenge, is a small, scrubbed, desperate critter whom we shall call “Dotty”, (for fear of getting my bake knocked in). I met her a couple of weeks back, knocking Donard’s bake in. She is loud, straightforward, has as much interest in the cache of the sport as fly and calls a spade a spade - well almost. This Saturday I met her on the Brandy Pad below the Castles. “Here he comes!” she shouts to her companion, unaffected that we have only ever met once before. This companion is Eastern European, stunning, with a ring through her conk, a hundredweight hank of hair in a ponytail and an accent that would melt Alec Ferguson’s dentures. Indulge me this detail. After a lot of slapping and thumping, Dot, perhaps to me, perhaps to Ninochka, perhaps to no one at all, aims a sweeping gesture towards Slieve Beg and assures “That is Cove” and to Cove, “That is Beg. And which one is La Manga?” I paused …. for oxygen. “That’ll be the one around Andalucia somewhere”, I thought. Nina smiled at me, no doubt fluent in sixteen languages and a first in Cartography. “Hah” I said, trying to say “Ah”. “Hah - that is Slieve Beg, that one Cove Mountain and that one (nice and clearly now) is Lamagan. “Yes” says Dotters, “Lumumum.” And I thought, the price we have paid to bask in the sweet warm mud of our modern world is innocence - good on you girl: call it what you like. Go bag it and bag it again - and one day she will overtake us…., when running up “La Manga”. Pic North of La Manga.
