Glenlara's long wide ridge is the southern approach to Birreencorragh. When I walked and ran this route in June the early morning Atlantic westerlies were whipping cloud across my path. The huge canvass brightened and darkened in spasms and the views in all directions were breathtaking. The photo below shows Glenlara and the long ridge, as seen from the western slopes of Birreencorragh. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/335/comment/1851/
