New Comment: 6 on Slievenamon
by tomodub  10 Jul 2017
A party of 6 hiked up Slievenamon and Sheegouna on the 27th June last. We followed a track previously uploaded from the website.

The forecast was poor when we left Dublin and was still heavily overcast when we reached Kilcash. We set off up the "tourist" route to Slievenamon, but the mists cleared at about 500metres and the Comeraghs, Knockmealdowns and the Galtees appeared in all their glory. Absolutely fantastic views, we reckoned we could see at least 5 counties from the summit of Slievenamon. There were a number of other hikers on the mountain, but we left them all behind as we headed towards Carrickabrock. The day was now fine and warm and a joy to be out on the hills. Our uploaded track was easy to follow and having reached Carrickabrock we then headed towards Sheegouna. However time was running out and we reluctantly contoured around the Eastern side of Slievenamon, joined up with the "tourist trail" and headed back to the cars at Kilcash. All in all a magnificent day, with many promises to return. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1490/comment/19601/
