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/
