Death of great mountaineer, Joss Lynam
MountainViews has learnt of the death of Joss Lynam, mountaineer and friend after a short illness.
Through a long career of service to mountaineering and hillwalking he earned many friends and much respect.
Established MountainViewers will know that the list of Ireland's 600m summits that we use was originally developed by Joss with a contact of his, Rev CRP Vandeleur, long before such lists became common. Hence the "Vandeleur-Lynam" list. (At Joss's express request, the list we publish will continue with the same specification as to prominence - 15m.)
In the 1970's I assisted Joss create the reprint of Claude Wall's "Mountaineering in Ireland", at the time the only book setting out to describe all the hill areas of Ireland. His work in popularising that book was an inspiration for me and much later for this website.
I also fondly remember working with him on the first five colour orienteering maps, on the committee of AFAS and doing a number of the Challenge Walks such as the Reeks and the Maamturks.
The range of things that he achieved from the IMC, the FMCI, BOS, the Waymarked Ways, to the Mountain Log, CnaT and UIAA is truly amazing.
He will be sadly missed.
Thanks for your re.. by Carlito   (Show all posts)
