Bring home your skins!!!!
by david bourke  24 Oct 2011
While on a recent climb of Slieve Snaght in the Derryveagh Mountains I was appalled to see the amount of Banana skins scattered close to the summit cairn. It would appear that the Leave No Trace policy is not being observed by some previous hillwalkers. The banana is a great source of energy to the hillwalker but the message still need to be brought home to a certain few to bring home the skins.
