Riddle of the Spinc
I was at Glendalough yesterday and on the Spinc for the first time. I cannot imagine there haven't already been a thousand hours debate on the boardwalk and and that there won't be a thousand hours more. Those conspiratorially for and those vociferously against.
And if I could add my twopence worth. Me? I'm just baffled.
Does it get people on to the Spinc? Undoubtedly but are those people more or different from those who would be on it anyway?
We most if us know that in recent times a party fell on it and took its guardians to court. That is absolutely not to suggest that it is easier to fall on than nature's own route underfoot but is it perhaps not inviting controversy if someone does fall on it - and I have to add that coming of it at some spots would be no joke. There's a busted limb somewhere in there.
My boots, my precious new big eff-off Zamberlans. Do I want their very expensive soles antagonised by that surface? Am I being precious?
I'll keep the jury out for now with just the barest edge in favour.
Incidentally I had forgotten what a very unappetizing spot is the Glendalough Park and Run.
