One to forget or, better still, ignore!
by Harry Goodman  23 Mar 2015
The only justification I can offer for "climbing" this hill is that in doing so I completed my list of the MV tops for Keenaght. It has nothing going for it. There is very little height gain and once at the "top" there was nothing to commend my being there apart from helping a peak bagger to tick it off on his MV list and move on. From the start point C5035716815 I followed the left edge of a field up to where a raised ditch, topped by a wire fence, went off at a right angle to my approach. The high point of the hill lay in a large grassy field on the other side of the ditch. Up and back took. less than 15 minutes. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1320/comment/17887/
