Possibly, Janet. My mountains here have two names: the Dublin Mountains
and the Wicklow Mountains, both names of equal validity and currency,
depending on how people see them. I very much doubt we coiuld be unique
in Ireland in that regard.
Long day, long week, no chance to read al, but glad to see such energy
illuminating and emanating from OLD-IRISH-L as could keep the whole
country warm this extremely cold sunny day.
