Hi Milly, Maria & Rob,
I had an amazing weekend, the weather was absolutley amazing.
I must say the Mini Mals New Order look is class and Milly's Limerck is outstanding.

There was indeed a few OK tents in the pics

Great pix there LMM. I especially like #62, MM with a hip pack, apparently.
Its an Aarn Mountian Magic 55

It was to stop the English plundering the tents like they did our country
Looks like a good weekend.
LMM, that last photo of Millys looks like you are following Mini Mals lead for travelling light

'Tree fish suppers' to ya!! It's no wonder you run short of tatties
Really good to see you again and to meet Huskyman. Catch up again in summer
* but I'd like a fluffy down bunnet
Sorry Rob, I keep forgetting your from the Valleys, it must be the nice posh accent
It was indeed a lovely down Bunnet, I will email you the place I got it from.

It was indeed very nice Matt, the troopers thought it was very like the Brecon Beacons but a bit steeper and taller.
The Galtee are my old stomping ground before as they are only 45 minutes form my front door (beofre I moved to silly Belgium and Us)

Have you been carrying Maria around the hills Robin, and just stopped for s drink .
Question, whats the white cross at the top of the hill ?.
A lot of Irish mountains have Crosses on them.
As far as I know it dates back to the time when catholics where not allowed to worship and secret masses where held in out of the way places.

So... stick a bloody great cross on top of a mountain so everyone can see it?
Nice photies from all of them, love the down hood thingy!
Teh Down hoody was quiet nice, Rob said he was nice and warm in it.
It sure is out of the way Alexander, there is a Trig point up their also
I hope it was only used for worship during the better weather .
The Free Church over here used to use natural hollowed out features when the church split (1843 ) before they started to build churches.
edit, I like the Famine wall, a nice bit of wall, unusual style, or are they all like that in Ireland ie the bottom part being different from the top section.
To be honest I am not sure about the design.
All I know is folk got paid in food to build it. In some places its in good condition but in others its in a bad state.
