New Home!

13th January 2010

The site is now running at a new home alongside nearby.org.uk. Please be patient if there a few things broken, we are currently testing all features to make sure they work.

We don't intend to change anything - so the site will still look and work the same as it has always done - just with a new admin.

All site functions, including registration of new users, should be now functional.

One of the greatest battles of the Viking Age was fought close to Lyons Hill when the celebrated Brian Boru destroyed a combined Leinster-Viking army in the battle of Glenmama, enabling Boru to capture Dublin City on New Year’s Day 1000.[xvi] Three years later the last of the Uí Dúnchada kings of Leinster was deposed by Máel Mórda of the Uí Fáeláin.[xv] Máel Mórda would die in the epic battle with Boru at Clontarf in 1014 and his son Bran mac Máelmórda was, in turn, the last of the Uí Fáeláin kings of Leinster. https://www.intokildare.ie/story/ancient-kildare-the-kings-of-leinster/

760 Cellach mac Dúnchado succeeded to the kingship of Laighin (Leinster) and established his base in Cnoch Liamhna (Lyons Hill, coordinates: 53°17′26″N 6°32′06″W) until his death in 776, the first king of Laighin to come from the Uí Dúnchada dynasty, commencing an elaborate three-way alternating kingship in among three Uí Dúnlaigne dynasties over a 300 year period with, according to UCD historian Francis John Byrne “astonishingly few disputes.” https://ardclough.wordpress.com/an-ardclough-timeline/

Owey Island (referred to as Moylemore on this site) TP is in very good condition, has no FB. Took a 5 min boat trip from Cruit Island to Owey last month, walked from the pier to the highest point on the island and found, but was not looking for, the trig point. Views were magnificent from Tory in the NNE to Bloody Foreland, Errigal, Gweedore, the Rosses out to Arranmore Island to the SW. Had no camera with me, only the phone, got 2 photos only as I had planned to return some days later but that never happened. Very breezy that day but had a lovely picnic at the TP. Will return next year with camera.


Woodcock Hill | 2014-08-11 | R 522 634| Elev:307 | FB:NR | Pillar:Slightly Damaged | View:Excellent | curus_lulus
In surprisingly good condition, I wanted to say in "Good" condition but went for "Slightly Damaged" as the pillar edge is slightly chipped in the direction toward the "golf ball" transmitter, which would be NNW. Otherwise the trigpoint is intact with the spider brass in place and all other holes hidden. As this is my first report, it did not occur to me to look for the FB No. so it is unfortunately "NR" for now..
