Northern Delights
To Captain Wheretogo - Cap I am sorry to hear of your trouble between Dundalk and civilisation (yes folks, the North of Ireland has become civilised. What next?) This idea of getting you into this hellonearth with no warning and not letting you out, is an old Southern Irish trick practised on Northern tourists upcountry when the pubs were closing. This circumstance has been brought about less by our prices up here being lower than yours, than by yours down there being ... how can I put it ...extraordinary! Here a reasonable bottle of Vin de Pays d'Oc can be accessed from Sainbury's for under the equivalent of 3.50 euro - which is why as things stand (if I can put it this way) Pamela Anderson with her kit off couldn't get into Newry right now. They say people are fighting in the Newry shopping centre car parks. No change there.
Not much advice for you and other north venturing track rats - and incidentally Crossmaglen is but a shadow of its former self - a shadow nonetheless. Newry from the dull carriageway is the prob. Cross takes you out around Armagh bearing away from the magical Mournes. You could pick up the Forkhill road out of Dundalk via Camlough - pron Camlow as in keep low which will help offload much of the prob. I am delighted however that Doan and others inspired you to lyricysm and not a little flatulence. Now that your back which was gone is back and my back which also was was gone is now back, perhaps we will collide - best though not as you try to get into the North as I try to get out.

While not very challenging, recent felling means the views along the way and from the summit are pleasant enough. A nice spot for a lunchtime walk.
