Slemish Mountain in County Antrim, Norn Iron.

Not far from Davy's house 👍😁

I was close after the 2nd clue, got it but couldn't find it after the 'hill' clue.

Indeed. Yes Slemish Mountain Co. Antrim which is actually a volcanic plug and classified as a hill.

Let me know your chosen charity for the £10 donation.

After the first 2 I thought it was Pompeii, then north India, then Paris, then Israel ... I clearly had no idea.

Well done KK. :D :clap: :clap:

Clue answers. Some were indeed very cryptic.

1. Once a place of great destruction I’d gulp because there’s little else now to show for it. It was once a volcano and now only the "plug"= gulp remains
2. This place is associated with a certain slave. St Patrick was a slave here herding sheep.
3. Depending on your belief this site may have a connection for a certain religion. Christianity.
4. If you knew about the fat lad you'd find it in part of him. FAT LAD was an acronym taught in schools as an aid to remembering the counties of Northern Ireland
5. Sheep can be found all around Martin but he didn't mind them here, someone else did. Martin = Antrim
6. You’d need a particular set of skills to live around here. Hint to Liam Neeson born in Ballymena a short distance away.
7.Going to watch a Southampton FC game with George David and Andrew. S'ton, the Saints St Patrick was missing from the list.
8. The history of a worldwide celebrated person will lead you to this location like many others have made their way. Theres a pilgrimage every St Patricks day up the hill.
9. This place is called a mountain but is really just a hill. Sometimes changing to terrain gives a new perspective. Hint to change the map view to terrain in the members map where it really stands out.
10. It would take a saint to live here while in slavery. As above.
11. Sometimes if I give him less information he can find this feature when changing the view on a map. him less = Slemish and another clue re the map change.
12. Betwixt the place of Ferries and Gibraltars twin this place stands proud when viewed differently. Slemish lies between Larne a Ferry port and Ballymena which is twinned with Gibraltar.
