Pony express
by Colin Murphy  8 Oct 2018
Seeing a group of about 7 or 8 ponies at the top of a mountain was a first for me. I did a little research and apparently these animals are wild, (according to a NI veterinarian group.) I also discovered that during the 18th and 19th centuries smuggling ships full of illicit packages of tobacco, wine, spirits, leather, silk and spices docked at the foot of the Mournes in Newcastle. Smugglers then loaded ponies with their loot and then hotfooted it through the Mournes to Hilltown. The smugglers track still exists today and was called 'The Brandy Pad.' The ancestors of those ponies perhaps??? Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/809/comment/20081/
