Shan Slieve Views Welcome
Shan Slieve receives no mention in mountainviews; if weighed in mountainviews' tokens, she wouldn't fill one of its canvas espadrilles.
Still, there is beauty to behold.
Firstly Shan Slieve isn't or at least barely is a top. Effectively she is Slieve Commedagh on your way home.
In bad vis though she can upset your beer plans by half an hour.
That written and if you can deal with some small, damp, dodgy cliffs, you will find yourself in places no one has been or has ever had any call to be, until you - yes you - are there.
During a dour and rushy descent it will dawn on you that you have fallen into a reverie that you will blame on boredom.
And that's how Shan Slieve gets you: she catches you off guard. In one blissful and baffling moment you discover you have stumbled on stage, the tea boy in front of a full house of snoozing vistas.
Deny yourself the standard descent off Slievenavaddy (hill of the dog, although probably abbreviated from hill of the red dog ie the fox - madra rua) and come off into Tullybrannigan (Brannigan's floodplain) by Hill of the Badger, Slievenabrock.
Behind you, the hill is pockmarked with silent springs sprouting Holy hollow hallowed holly. In front, the impenetrable head high rushes of the Tullybrannigan River. On the Northern horizon, Slieve Croob (Sliabh Craobh - branch/bough hill) distant, detached like a bold child sent to stand in the corner. Beneath you the silver sweep of Dundrum Bay to St John's Point.
Shan Slieve. Old Hill. Why not try it for a new view.
