simon3 shows the gold bauble on the trig pillar of Slievemore in his picture taken in March '08. Then Peter Walker refers to it in his post of October '08. Alas let me be the bearer of bad news-this photo, taken last week, shows the top half of the bauble missing. I doubt if it blew off. Judging by the graffiti covering the trig pillar, (and graffiti covering the bauble in simon3's picture) maybe it was only ever going to last a short while. A nice thought and effort from someone to put it there, and the usual human need for destruction displayed here too. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/153/comment/3679/
