"" from Bleck Cra Contract pics
Picture: (Contract pics)

Caked grey ice clung to crack-tooth crags like dead man’s spittle. The flaccid flanks of pewter clouds, barged and bullied by biting winds, wept bitter tears into fetid glens. From the bowels of this grey tableau, the Devil’s fingers nursed bat’s teeth needles of frost and cast them in the barren air. The Mourne Mountains ninth day of the cruellest month and darkness was abroad. Lone riders slow, sulking, refractory, dragged their hapless trails behind them. Grim and grumbling, like distracted ghosts. Troops of bowed innocents poured in silent rivulets on to crumbling tracks, like grey mice from a burst barrel, criss-crossing, weaving arcane symbols on the land. Against the too blues and too whites of a different winter sky, three ravens rose and scattered like soot smuts from a Russian campfire and a sole skylark popped from burnt bog like poison gas. When the sun comes again to warm us (and it will), will it be as rotting flesh amongst the servants of mammon or alive with our own God in our own hills? Do widzenia Lolek.

Anglesey Mountain: Great Carlingford views from a so-so top
Collaborative entry Last edit by: Colin Murphy a week ago.
There is enough space to park one car at 100 167, just on the edge of a wood around a sharp u-bend. Proceed north for 100m before turning NE up a gentle slope, although the terrain is treacherous ...
