Re The Invisible Mountain
Hi Kevin. Carrigshouk, just southeast of Mullacleevaun East Top, only has a prominence of about 26 metres, missing out on inclusion by only 4 metres! Measuring from the map, its col at O095 055 is approximately 545 metres. It would need to be 541 metres to get the required 30 metres prominence. I've measured this with GPS on one occasion on the ground as, like yourself, I'd love to see it included! But, alas, no luck! However if anyone else can measure it on the ground and get closer to 541 we may have a case. I'll recheck my GPS tomorrow!

On a curious note about the other tops - the ones you mentioned have indeed disappeared from the list of 500 metre summits, but they miraculously reappear on the list of 150 metres summits! (ie- on the list of all Dublin/Wicklow including smaller tops). A glitch in the system methinks!
