Recognition for the Arderins
Context of comment:The Arderins, the list of Irish Mountains of 500m with a prominence of 30m has now been recognised as a premier list providing a lifetime challenge.
Message:In a joint announcement Mountaineering Ireland and MountainViews have described the vision, nature and objectives of the list. See
https://mountainviews.ie/resourceitem/announcements/ArderinsAnnouncementFinal.pdf

The joint announcement reflects agreement between Mountaineering Ireland's new hillwalking committee and MountainViews.
Additional points:The Arderins list in its current form was put together by MountainViews in 2009. The list was originally based on work by Joss Lynam and also Myrdyyn Philips/ Michael Dewey. Hundreds of people have contributed to the list or the data associated with it. The specification for the list is that summits must be at least 500m above sea level with a prominence of at least 30m. Currently there are 406 such summits recognised, however the number is expected to change as more refined surveying takes place. For example in Nov 2019 it was discovered that Common Mountain in Donegal SW forrmerly thought to be an Arderin misses out because surveying shows that its height is 499.7m, just under the minimum required.

Comment from MountainViews

We are delighted with this agreement and we hope it encourages hillwalkers to try the delights of the very very varied Arderins. We have not lost track however that ultimately the success of lists is in how hillwalkers view them and participate in them.
