Bencorragh from Finny end
by jkforde  27 Jun 2011
how's it going folks? has anyone gone up Benbeg from the east end, eg. from Finny (M003594) and taking in Bencorragh? There's some v v interesting 500 million year old volcano-type geology up in them there hills and the pillow lavas on Bencorragh and Benbeg are meant to be the real deal - see this Geological Survey Of Ireland short guide for the Finny end: http://www.gsi.ie/Education/Sites+Walks+Field+Trips/Walk+1+Volcano.htm

So am curious about access to Bencorragh from the Finny end.
