The border between Northern and Southern Ireland runs along the Cuilcagh mountain.In olden days mules would be laden down with butter to avoid paying duty.Military helicopters would patrol along here at the height of the troubles.There are thousands of tales of Cuilcagh.It's not a particularly high mountain,but from the southern side there is no clearly defined path to climb up.Following the river has been my usual route-eating fresh bilberries and drinking the spring water bubbling out of the side of the mountain.On a clear day at least nine counties can be viewed.
Hopefully i'll be up there again this year.


  1. That picture of Cuilcagh is my favorite, I came across your blog randomly after a friend showed me a video of me from 2003, Hope all is well, and I Hope to see you soon, Sean Dragonetti.

    Email me sometime!

  2. I still have nightmares about 'The green streak'.Its the same with Ferns . Aaah

  3. Hi Sean and No1, i think it was known as the 'Green Stripe' No1,but my memory might be wrong.Still whatever it was that was the initial target.
    Glad to see you on here Sean.I will email.


Thanks for all your comments. I may not get to reply to them all, but you may be sure they'll be appreciated.
