Commemorating Joss Lynam - Knocknarea
Joss Lynam, famous mountaineer and creator of many resources for hillwalking in Ireland died recently. His ashes were scattered in a short ceremony on Knocknarea, a Binnion of 327m and the most northerly of the Ox Mountains.
Some 80 or 90 people were present for the commemoration which was organised by his family and MI.
It was a time to meet old and new friends, united in remembering a man of huge ability and great personal warmth. A time to remember also a man who was a great hillwalker - certainly I remember accompanying him as he completed the Maamturks in 1993 in under 12 hours, at which point he was nearly 70.
