List of hewitts in Northern Ireland

Hewitts are hills in England, Wales and Ireland that are at least 2,000 feet (610 m) high with a relative height of at least 30 m (98 ft). The original list, covering only England and Wales, was compiled by Alan Dawson and originally published in The Relative Hills of Britain under the name Sweats.[1] The list was subsequently renamed Hewitts to include Ireland, updated, and published in a series of three booklets edited by Dave Hewitt: The Hewitts and Marilyns of Wales,[2] The Hewitts and Marilyns of England[3] and The Hewitts and Marilyns of Ireland.[4]
