Mourne erratus.
My sympathies and empathies to the parties proper, more documentation; The Mourne Heritage Trust’s Report of Consultation Workshops for their Operational Plan of 2007-2010, and their Natural Resource Tourism Initiative published a little earlier, if anybody cares for data, all available online. The MHT, it is proposed, should be the ‘eyes, ears and voice’ of the area to local, regional, national and international audiences.” An ‘Increased awareness of possibility of Mournes as a ‘brand’’ is proposed. The Mountainviews exercise, replete with opportunity and missed opportunity. Has one been moved? Perhaps. There are folk who care. Always good. Sympathies. Definitely. Both for man and land. (Who can but feel for man? "Man is...a thinking erratum, that's what he is. Every season of life is an edition that corrects the one before and which will also be corrected itself until the definitive edition, which the publisher gives to the worms gratis.’ The shovel and pen remain needed, it seems. Poor Machado’s (Joaquim Maria) man, and his poor land, branded.) Staying on course, ‘Since1990, a perceived upsurge in recreational use initiated a number of studies on path erosion in the High Mournes (the area enclosed within the Mourne Wall) (Allinson,1994; Ferris 1994; Smith et al, 1998). However, no reliable data exists on current use in the High Mournes, either in terms of overall numbers of walkers and other recreational users or the pattern of use in space and time (Smith et al, 1998). It is therefore difficult to forecast the future...’ (‘The pattern of use in space and time’.... reads like poetry.) Without such data one wonders at how best policy is established. Perhaps ‘the eyes, ears and voice of the area’ will enlighten its audience. Another Machado man, (Antonio) once had a dream. He dreamt that bees were making sweet honey from all his old failures. It is a sticky issue. May it be adhered to with the best wills, and the findings noted for a wholly attentive audience, wherever, whose patch of the furrow it may next enlighten. Mac is correct as are his opponents, judgement will be on the pattern of use in space and time.
