GUEST,Stephen R. Valiant? Lunar? - Mountains in County Down (5) RE: Valiant mountain? Lunar mountain? 25 Jan 04

Thanks, Claire Bear; I'll do this shortly. Possibly either of these might be translations of a Gaelic name; or maybe the Gaelic name *sounds* like 'lunar' or 'valiant'--these things can get garbled in unpredictable ways in oral tradition. I'll also see if I can find an atlas of Ireland in some local library; I'm no whiz at Gaelic, but I think I could spot the original of either of these if they are in fact translatios.

By the way--look up 'bear' in Gaelic--it's odd and interesting, and has to do with ancient taboos.

Stephen R.
