Jimmy, I have seen one sign advising that dogs are unwelcome at one access point on the Aherlow side of Lough Curra. I did not access the lake/mountain by that route.Perhaps I should explain that I was brought up on and still live and work a farm in the foothills of the nearby Knockmealdowns. For upwards of 30 years we have kept sheep(dry cattle, suckler cows also).It is true to say uncontrolled dogs can chase sheep and indeed can attack and mutilate them in the very worst of cases( which I have experienced myself firsthand).If I was a farmer over whose lands groups of people /families regularly walked then I would think a blanket ban might be the easiest way to prevent harm to my sheep from those who don't know any better. However , rightly or wrongly I would like to think I don't fall into that category,at this time of year sheep are at particular risk from shock/stress due to the fact that they are probably pregnant.In my experience however the threat from dogs is no greater than that from humans. As long as the dogs are collared and not allowed to run after and worry the sheep then there is no danger, indeed the sheep are oblivious to them. Sheep are only injured if the dog actually bites them or chases them for a sustained period of time.My dog was collared at all times when near the sheep on that day and was not even let loose on the forestry track back to the carpark. I could take exception to the suggstion from someone who does not know me that I set out to injure animals, surely on mountainviews there can be a trust that contributors are not just mindless vandals? You must have read some of my comments before Jimmy, surely a line through the messaging service?
And as to Lough Curra Mountain, 1. What is its summit height compared to the lowest point on the col next to it? 2.What is the qualifying criteria for a summit on MV Linkback:
