The height of Ireland
Short Summary created by jackill,  19 Jan 2011
Park in the car park at S231996 A just on the county bounds, room for 10 cars. Drop down a short grassy slope on from the carparks east side, cross a stream and up a boggy, mud track to the summit. The top is marked by a OS trig point at ground level and a small cairn. The road up from the Mountrath side has a very good surface however the road down the western side is rutted and collapsed in sections. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/399/comment/5158/
