Twin peak view.

Croagh Patrick, magnificent from most angles, is complemented in this view from Ben Bury by the solitary and equally shapely Nephin to its left.
A magnificent mountain indeed, though Croagh Patrick is preferably seen at a sufficient distance to mask the path gouged out by the hordes. The small white dot at the top is a church incidentally.
The small summit in the mid ground towards Croagh Patrick is Knockakishaun in the townland of Tangincartoor. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/43/comment/5916/
