Tara
Trailtrekker - thank you for putting your hands up, we'll send the firing squad around tomorrow.
Your information was very much appreciated, we have always found it difficult to coerce people into helping out !
But people are busy and not everyone has the time to fit in this type of voluntary work.
In fairness I went through all 328 of the new entries before MV published and there were a number of items I missed too which now seem obvious.
From a list of more than 500 possible summits supplied by Jim Bloomer, the initial list was whittled down by Wicklore , the list was then broken into regional sections and rechecked by Peter Walker, Muzag, BMcCabe,PHealy and myself. It is a substantial amount of work which took members of MV roughly 16 months to complete.

In the case of Tara we will revise this very soon and probably cause more controversy in the process.
It is listed as Tara by Loganim.ie and in O'Donovans , letters to the OS of the 1830s.
Hill of Tara appears in 6", 25" and 1:50k maps.

There will also be a revision to Hill of Slanes irish name to Mullach Bhaile Shlaine .
This will reflect its naming on maps/Loganim.
