Dubliners! Carpe Montes!
by CaptainVertigo  3 Sep 2012
I am sure that I have been as guilty as the rest of you of condescension towards the Dublin Mountains. After all The Elect don't like to think that the common people can experience heaven without enduring considerable hardship. I will concede that the nearer the city the greater the intrusion, the damage, the risk and the crowd. I had almost expected to see armed men burning stolen cars and burying the odd victim on those hills. My message to Dublin residents is this. These mountains are so very close to you. Resolve now that you will visit Prince William's Seat, Knocknagun and Glendoo on a sunny June morning about 6am. The baddies will all be just gone to bed . You'll be perfectly safe. And the world will be your oyster. Very few cities are blessed with such a platform. Try to make time to watch kernowclimber's and mcrtchly's little YouTube film. It will give you a flavour, just a taste, of what lies above. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/351/comment/14795/
