Climbed this back in November 2008 as part of my 'county high points' ongoing task. Can be combined with a visit to Loughcrew in County Meath and Corn Hill in Longford, all of which are perfect for young children. As wicklore pointed out, the biggest problem is finding Mullaghmeen itself - I spent quite a bit of time being directed from Castlepollard to Oldcastle and back in my bid to find the forest park. On reaching Mullaghmeen, it's quite easy to see why it goes unnoticed - it's covered head to toe in trees and blends seamlessly into the surrounding countryside given it's lowly height of just 261 metres. Wicklore gives directions to the summit which was in an area of felled and recently replanted forest. The summit itself was marked by a scattered cairn in which was placed an elongated stump of one of the felled trees. Good views from the summit of the large expanse of Lough Sheelin. Our short stay was memorable for a conversation overheard where a chap from Dublin told his son that the hill in the distance was 'Croagh Patrick, the second highest mountain in Ireland.. I climbed it years ago.. was a beast of a thing'. When the obvious question came from his son as to which was the highest mountain, he answered 'dat's an east one dat.. everyone knows that it's the Sugarloaf'. At this point I had to nudge my daughter who was bursting to share her knowledge of mountains gleamed from her recently acquired love of mountains and hills.
