Still working at Slieve Donard

My work session at Slieve Donard continues, now into its fifth month. Slieve Donard is Northern Ireland's highest mountain, and even in the winter, has a very high footfall of path users. The path I am helping to repair is managed by the National Trust, and I work alongside their team of mountain rangers and also their volunteers. I also work beside Mourne Heritage Trust as we carry out vital repairs and maintenance to the Donard main path, and also a section of the Bloody Bridge path. Path working in the hills in winter is always a trial, and this winter is no different but we are persevering. As usual!!
