Bang goes the View
There’s one thing in the North we love more than setting things on fire – and haven’t we done well over recent months, igniting anything torchable within a fag’s stroll from a Subara Impreza - goading girning hillwalkers, poking fun at pompous firefighters, indulging indignant swamp lovers and convulsing incorrigible firelighters? The craic’s been mighty. And the one thing we love more than burning them is …., why of course …, blowing them up! Sure this is the North after all. If we all loved each other with a maternal passion, we would still go for blowing-up every time. The attached pic shows the latest offering from a rapidly downspiralling youth in peace-torn Ulster. We’ve set fire to the trees in Donard Park, then the trees above Donard Park, the whins above the trees above the trees above Donard Park and now we’re bored. So let’s trail some Buckie bottles up the Annalong track, hang a left up past Percy Bysshe, wing up to Binnian’s North Tor and blow a piece out of it. Admittedly a very small piece – but blown out nonetheless. Cra thought of drawing this to the attention of the new virgin Police Service of Northern Ireland (sure why wouldn’t they be – have you had a look at them?) but given they are now pushed to fill their day (other of course than the business I myself selflessly provide them), I fear an introduction such as “Good Morning Officer” would get me arrested for being in possession of a dangerous vocabulary….., I chose to appraise mountain viewers instead. Anyone any notion what this is about? We have G1 granite shrapnel from a 3 feet hole over a radius of 40metres, circa the main Binnian/Lamagan track. Perhaps someone told them the North Tor was made from “ice”.
