County Tops List Available
Context of comment:In the List and Logs section, now the Eight Lists, there is a new list for County Tops or, more properly, county high points.

Message:The County Tops list allows you to see what county summits there are and, if you are interested in summiteering, keeping track of the ones you have climbed. For a few places the county top is not a summit in its own right and could be described as the county highest point. This is the case for example with Leitrim where the highest point is a cairn on a ridge from Truskmore.

In five cases the county top is shared between two counties, for example Galtymore which is shared between Limerick and Tipperary.

Thanks goes to a number of people for the information that made this list possible including members: madfrankie and pdtempan.
Additional points:As always we invite people to review information we present and flag errors.

Update= as pointed out by paulocon. There is an issue with Roscommon which has been resolved by including the highest point which is on a SE slope of Seltannasaggart.

Truskmore SE Cairn: Nice addition to Truskmore
bertandally an hour ago.
No excuse not to come over here for a peek if you are at Truskmore, so that's what we did and it's worth it for the extra view.
