Sub Arderins, Sub 600s etc.
Context of comment:Recently one member buttonholed me at a recent WAI meeting with a photocopy of the OS map of Carrighshouk in the Wicklow Mountains. To date we have not included this summit in our lists because our assessment has been that it falls short of the 30m prominence requirement. However looking at the enlarged contours presented I would have to say that in fairness there's a pretty good possibility that Carrigshouk does have enough prominence and that future measurements might well establish this.

Taking this as an example it would seem to me that there are, up and down the island, numerous examples of summits which almost have the right prominence or almost have the right height to be in a given list such as the Arderins, Vandeleur-Lynams or Binnions.

We already have a feature so that users can get a 500 or 600m list in either of two forms. Strictly adhering to a prominence requirement or relaxed listing. That being the case it would seem that we should be prepared to include further summits near to the limit so that at least they are included in the relaxed listing.

Comments please.

Note: subsequently it was discovered that Carrigshouk has a prominence of 31m
