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]

There are 211 Hewitts in Ireland, 19 of which lie in Northern Ireland:

Region 43 (Armagh, Down, Antrim)

Region 44 (Londonderry, Tyrone, Fermanagh)

One further Hewitt lies on the border, and is the highest point of two counties Cavan and Fermanagh and of the border itself:

Region 45 (Donegal to Sligo)
