The Trig is the Top!
by Trailtrekker  30 Aug 2015
Of the January 2014 Binnion additions this has to be one of the best and well done to those who added it. Of those who have been out there early doors I hope that you visited the trig point, as this is the true summit and not the one initially marked down as such!

I accessed the summit using the way marked Annalough Loop starting at the car park of Fitzpatricks restaurant and bar. If using this way marked trail to access the summit you can start here, or there is an easier access point from the stile at J 13084 10063 E, which is higher above sea level and a shorter trip to the top, it has ample car parking and will make your walk a bit shorter. By using the Annaloughan Loop, whether walking all or part of it, just off it is the site of a 1942 Plane Crash which claimed 15 victims. It was the most tragic crash in Ireland in the entire WWII/Emergency period, of which there were many, although despite this it is one of the lesser known crashes to have happened in our hills! The memorial to the crash is beside a rocky outcrop at J 13113 08998 B. The best account that I have found of it online is on the link below and I would suggest that you have a read of same before setting out for the hill.

The legs of the plane can still be seen in the nearby bog, but I will leave it to those who read the article to ascertain where! The area around here is wet under foot and from here you can take a bearing towards the summit.

There is another point of interest on the way marked loop! Although not as aesthetically outstanding as the many neolithic tombs in this area, the Rockmarshall court tomb is probably the oldest of them all! It is marked on the OSi map and the remnants of it can be found at J 12500 08000 F. While I'm mentioning neolithic tombs in the area, you really should check out Proleek Dolmen and it's impressive 40 tonne capstone which is a gentle stroll out the back of the grounds of the nearby Ballymascanlon hotel.

This is an area that has produced some of Louth and Ireland's greatest sport stars in recent years, the nearby Gaelic Football Club has been the most successful in Louth for the past decade. Their finest product being Paddy Keenan, Louth's first All Star and International player. While the brothers Kearney, both recent winners of the rugby six nation championship, are from just a few miles further out the road! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1119/comment/15934/
