Bleck Cra on Slieve Loughshannagh, 2009
by Bleck Cra  9 Mar 2009
Today we were fortunate enough again to be in the company of the great polymath Peewee McGargle. In a vast sweeping loop, lassoing Slievenaglogh, craggy Crom, beloved Doan, Slieveloughshannagh and Carn (named after a Carpenter) and presenting wild, full-frame vistas of the whole Mournes range, hairy drops to hard rocks and endlessly restless water, also driven mercilessly by Desperate McConville and the O’Driscol More, we witnessed again Peewee’s uncanny hold on nature.
Peewee claims direct lineage from the Russian prelate spook, Grigori Rasputin. As with GR, we have tried to shoot him and poison him, neither to any effect. So today we resorted to trying to drown him and so fired him into the Miner’s Hole River somewhere in the middle of this. Why it is called thus no one knows: it could have something to do with miners or perhaps the church. Anyway. Sure enough, he went down like a stone, invoking the Devil but alas the dogooder Saint Sean McNickelmas snagged him by the jockstrap and winched him to safety. There seems nothing else we can do and we are at a loss. The day was just straight out of a Northern climes handbook – sun to fry your face, snow to freeze your fingers, meltwater seeping even from the rocks. This is a fab route and introduced to Cra for the first time today. Wing out from the Gamekeeper’s Lodge Equestrian Centre, South of Crocknafeola on the Kilkeel Road out of Hilltown. Just keep going up and anticlockwise and you’ll soon get the hang of it. Come off Carn or thereabouts due South and thence to a roaring log fire in Doran’s pub Hilltown. I am going to try the Braveheart treatment or that of Edward ll or perhaps both on Peewee but expect no success. Trackback:
