The Discipline of The List (2)
I will, no doubt, find the time again to write up the Sheffrey route. But it was magnificient and all the better for walking east to west so that the crescendo that is Doolough, where Mweelrea, Creggan and Barrclashcame face each other in a timeless stand off, would blaze in front of me - one of the finest sights in the land. And along the way,somewhere around Tieveummera, as the Devil's Mother and Maumtrasna sparkled to the south, and Croagh Patrick tried to hide Clew Bay to the north, and mountains shimmered all around, I spied a figure approaching from the west. We exchanged greetings. Both were solo pilots. Both had cycled miles from their cars but in oppositie directions. Both were baggers. Both were MV men...MV men who had never met. Both reflected on the likely position of the Scavvies on the eastern Reeks...and the fact that neither would ever ever waste a special day walking the same way twice. What a pleasure it was to meet Fingal's Cave for the first time high on the Sheffreys, and we to be members of the same family, sharing the same heritage, baggers working our Lists, proud to be ships that passed in the short but intesnely beautiful day.
