The true Top of Roscommon !
by Harry Goodman  19 Dec 2011
I have read Gribster's comment with great interest. When I visited the SE Slope in June 2008 I used OSNI Sheet 26 (B Edition 2001) which placed the high point on the County Boundary as G9040019550 I I and not G903 196 J This grid reference in the text is shown as point J on the Detail Map above'>G903 196 J J, the then listed MV co-ordinates. This said the MV reference conveniently placed the high point at a track junction some 100m NW of my reading. As I was walking part of the Miner's Way at the time I found the track actually crossed the MV reference point en route and it was therefore a simple matter of leaving the track and walking the short distance out to my own reference point G9040019550 I I. This appears to lie within a 25m margin of error from that given by Gribster and the now accepted MV reference. At the time there was nothing marking the spot and I am glad to read that a small cairn of stones has since been errected. I also recall that the hummocky ground had a number of "contenders" for the highest point but a short stroll around will satisfy even the most fastidious walker that s/he has been to the Top of Roscommon! Intrigued by the apparent discrepancy between the original MV reference and the currently accepted one, I again studied my maps and have found that on an earlier version of Sheet 26 (dated 1981) the County Boundary high point was indeed located, just beside a track, at G903 196 J This grid reference in the text is shown as point J on the Detail Map above'>G903 196 J J (the original MV reference). I therefore assume that this was the map used to determine the earlier MV reference point. Indeed tracks at that time were not as well marked on the map, and pre-dated the laying of more substantial tracks to service the later established Wind Farm.
