New Comment: Lough Nafooey Watcher.
by sandman  7 May 2017
Watching over Lough Nafooey from its western side this hill when viewed from the Lough is of an impressive nature but not so from way of accent , well my way of accent. By parking in a small lay-by located at L9328659124 A and walking directly across to the hill will allow you to ford the stream easily. A short and easy walk up to the summit . You can continue the walk from here and visit the near by Rinavore which can be seen in the background of the summit photo. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1210/comment/18912/
