We tackled Croaghaun after completing Greenoge -- see that comment for parking info. Sheet 68 appears to be accurate in its depiction of the tracks. The summit of Croaghaun is a bend in a forest track, with recently-felled ground to the left and forest on the other sides. It's not particularly inspiring, and the fog made it even less so. Ah well, another one in the bag, and as consolation, a small herd of deer did put in an appearance. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/602/comment/2843/
