Bleck Cra on Slieve Corragh, 2005
by Bleck Cra  1 Feb 2005
Slieve Corragh - “rough mountain”: ignored or derided by horny-hooved height-sprites: just letters to climb over, en route to somewhere else. But ahh, the Pot of Legawherry and the castles over Spinkwee - grandstand seats to view soul-healing panoramas of South Down. The shortest route between Commedagh and Bearnagh. Seaward of the wall - the Blue Lough Bog (… and bog) Crom and “Doan forget me”; leeward of the wall, the lushest of lowlands. And so I was clambering over the letters C-O-R-R-A-G-H when at a stone’s throw, stood “Nanny of the North” and my first glimpse of wild goat aux Mournes. These Celtic moutons are the whole heap - fabulous mythical-like creatures in piebald, skewbald, blond, jet black …… in some airts in Scotland you can entice them with fag packets, wheels trims and bits of brick - which they eat enthusiastically. In the high hills there and here, they are spirits of the mist and snort at human contact unless that human smells of cheese and pickle sandwich. “A goat, it was a goat”, I enthused to this bloke approaching in the opposite lane. And he started - the sheep versus the Water board, the Water Board versus the sheep, and himself versus civilisation itself. Of course this was only a preamble for the goats, who got it very badly in the neck: air-borne bugs, water borne parasites, something to do with them and sheep and a forward Spring; then they all got it: cats, dogs, ponies, chickens. Sure Noah might as well have just pulled out the plug. En route home I spied a sign outside a Newcastle pub - “live-in baa”. My favourite however, would be Super Valu Newcastle 2003: “Breakfast Muffs only 50p” illustrated by a small sausage sticking out of a bun. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/212/comment/1455/
