Picture: Slieveboy trig
 
Did it fall or was it pushed?
by Pepe  14 Aug 2019
This poor old trig has keeled over at the Slievboy mast compound. Did it fall or was it pushed? Who knows, perhaps the upside-down beer label (visible in the foreground of the picture) provides a clue. Maybe it just drank too much, or maybe it just toppled in a storm. Either way, it's a shame to see it like this. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/739/comment/20625/
