Hillocks
Simon. Himself is the well known to some, Bernard Hill. Less well known of course are hills to do with ants, except to some. Keep er lit though. At least some sort of discussion and of course only a mountain view.
Incidentally, good work Grasshopper. Good, simple research and nice rounded argument per the midges. I would go with it although some could argue it is not flawless.
1. It is is over reliant on esteemed references and under reliant on its innate good common sense.
2. There is no way of knowing which came first - the Irish or the English. A determined researcher could posit the latter.
3. If every hill and bog on these islands is infested with midges which it is, what kind of unique Hell qualifies Hill A as the hill of the midges?

This is good for your Meelmore argument because no other hill on the planet is so noted for its ants.
