Sharing the story of the Chair
by wicklore  31 Jan 2012
Listeners to RTE’s Liveline programme may have heard me today as I discussed the chair and Teddy memorial on Slievecorragh and its history. The podcast can be listened to here: http://www.rte.ie/podcasts/2012/pc/pod-v-31011215m15slivelinememorial-pid0-915192 H.mp3 Please remove the (point A) and (Point B) insert in the http link as these are generated by MountainViews thinking they are grid references!

I initially gave a general background to the story without identifying the hill or Dan Clancy out of respect to Dan’s family. However Dan’s brother Andrew, who sculpted the chair, agreed to go on air and joined me in discussing the chair, its origin and memorials in general. It is particularly poignant as the anniversary of Dan’s death falls this week, and the chair has been on the hill for 8 years now. We were joined on air by a local woman who said she walks on the hill every week with her grandchildren and never knew the story behind the chair. She, like many of us, was touched to hear the origin of the chair. Once again it shows the value of MountainViews.ie in bringing the stories, history, and local knowledge of our uplands to the wider hillwalking public.

I took the opportunity on Liveline to mention MountainViews.ie and the wealth of information available to visitors to the site, including information on our 1056 listed hills and mountains. Joe Duffy appeared somewhat taken aback at this figure and that there were people out there who are climbing hundreds of them! Slievecorragh may be an obscure and little-visited hill, but it was the centre of attention for a short period of time on national radio today. 404,000 Liveline listeners got a peek into our world of hillwalking and the stories and experiences out there waiting to be discovered.
