A modest hill-top memorial
by madfrankie  24 Oct 2011
Summits can be bleak places - featureless and unmarked. But there are quite a few examples of hill-tops that are chosen as memorials to the deceased.
I recently came across a memorial on Knockatee in Beara to Richard Mersey. And the Sperrins outlier Slive Gallion has a memorial to Ronnie Magwood.
The trig pillar of Knockalough (if you can find it!) is set in a sheltered glade amidst dense forestry, and has a patch of concrete at its base with the inscription: "In Fond & Loving Memory Of Dickie RIP CO'F". I'm guessing that Dickie may have been a dog? Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/706/comment/6598/
