Forest Walk to Hilltop
by Gobbledygook  16 Jun 2014
Ease of access and parking is a plus. There are two signs at the entrance saying 'Forest of The Dunbrody' and 'Site of Rebel Camp June 1798'. I learned from another walker that part of the wood has trees growing which replace the trees used for building the Dunbrody Famine Ship. There is a forest road going up the hill in good condition - a moderate incline. Half way up the a little stream appears and disappears again into the wood. I crossed a gate and two stiles to proceed to the top. At the end of the forest road there is a clearance with a seat to to rest. I turned onto a narrow path with gorse on either side leading to the hilltop. There are fantastic panoramic views to South Wexford, KIlkenny and Carlow. I could see Brandon Hill, Mount Leinster, Slievenamon, the Comeraghs and more. An obvious choice for a camp site and battle ground in 1798 as it is a prominent hill close to and overlooking New Ross. There is a 1798 commemorative monument and a holy year cross on the top of the hill. Overall a beautiful hill and a very pleasant walk. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1300/comment/16022/

Not alone.

On an early morning solo walk on Lacken Hill it wasn't only the lost souls of 1798 that accompanied me. I noticed small brownish moths flying in and about the forestry that spreads it's way around the slopes of this lovely little hill. Keeping a handy pot in my kit-bag I eventually captured one of them for a photo and ID. Turns out they were Spruce Carpet moths, common moths on the wing May to July and later September to November. Look out for them on a hill near you! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1300/comment/16102/

Steeped in history
by Kennyj  1 Nov 2015
Turn off the N30 onto the L4013,signposted Lacken,turn right at first junction and forest entrance is a short distance on the left.I followed the Dunbrody forest trail up onto the hill crossing two gates up to a clearing,turn right here up a laneway marked with a rebellion monument sign before crossing a stile onto the summit marked with a holy year cross and rebellion monument.Nice autumn stroll through the forest onto this history soaked hill.Good views on a clear day but today some lingering fog spoiled this.
