EXAISLE CLIMB DOWN PLEASE
Exaisle - poor, blind, blundering innocent. Alas you have stumbled unwittingly on a gang. Do I disagree with your point about any presentation of any kind, no matter how banal, of our hillwalking habit? Not at all. But of course that is not the point kernowclimber is making – which being poor, blind, blundering and innocent, you couldn’t help but miss. Could I just pick you up if I may on a couple of other points? The crossfertilisation of hill-matters Britain to Ireland and vice versa is – and I agree with you wholeheartedly – very worthy, however its value is, I hope you can see, academic to readers of a website committed virtually exclusively to Irish hills. Lastly, your reference to commercial spinoff is less worthy and does you no favours – again it has value but it is not what we are about. I do not believe it is what you are about either. If we could rewind, the point here is that a mountainviews contributor has demonstrated his hots for La Bradbury; others including myself (you see, that is what a gang is …) have demonstrated our colds for the same Bradbury – I hope in an intelligent and amusing way. If you disagree, you may have stumbled again over the evidence; and to pick up on dhmiriam’s implicit exhortation for you to drink of kernowclimber’s fab piece on Donegal, perhaps you would reconsider. “Intelligent and amusing” are the keys here exaisle and as such “puerile” may not be the most judicious descriptor. Incidentally as an exaisle from either of the economic entities noted above, you may understand your qualifications to comment on the Irish position are subject to scrutiny. Smile exaisle and the whole world smiles with you – including all and any of your domiciles past and present.
