Mark of the Beast
Just picked up a new copy of OSNI sheet 26, it appears that Cuilcagh has gained a metre, and now has a listed height of 666, rather than the MV listed 665 metres.

Other hills have been less fortunate :-

Benbeg down a metre to 538 (MV height 539)

Bencroy down 5 metres to 513 (MV height 518) and more impressive, the summit has moved around 500 metres east!

Knockacullion down 1 metre to 561 (MV height 562)

Benbrack down 3 metres to 499 (MV height 502), this of course, would remove it from 500m list

Also in the Arigna Mountains, near by, Carran Hill has lost 4 metres to 454 (MV height 458)

Seltannasaggart is down 2 metres to 426 (MV height 428), Harry Goodman mentions this height as 426 in his post, perhaps the mining has chopped 2 metres off this summit.

Also, Seltannasaggart SE top, the grid ref may need changed from G903 196 to G903 195, given the way the county border is now marked on the new map.

If others would like to run their hawk like eyes over the map sheet, its osni sheet 26, and check my comments above for errors, I would be most grateful. The copyright date on the map is 2009

Vinegar Hill: Steeped in history.
TommyV a week ago.
The history of this place takes precedence over the actual scenery but there are lovely views over the town of Enniscorthy.
