Firebreak, heartache?
by eamonoc  28 Sep 2013
Wed 25/9/2013. Looking for a short easy way up Benduff I followed Young Johns directions from Moneygall. When Benduff comes into view on the left as one travels upward from Moneygall the firebreak in the woods is very obvious to see. I parked at a set of rusty double gates room for one car here S041 783 K. Climbed the gates and crossed the field to a ditch I followed this in a leftward direction until I reached a small stream I crossed this and over a small wire fence and followed this fence uphill keeping the forest on my immediate left. The ground was steep and churned up by the passage of many cow hooves, followed the fence all the way up to an old stone bridge in the corner of the field, crossed this and the going got very rough plenty of wild briars and the odd bit of gorse to contend with, headed for the firebreak and came to a blackthorn tree and lots of gorse blocking the entrance to the firebreak higher up. I was able to crawl under the low branches of the tree and get into the firebreak and onto easier ground, this took about 15mins from the car. Plenty of heather here but a path was visible under the heather and this made the climb a bit easier. No problems form here on up to the summit which I reached in about 25mins from the car, nice views to be had in all directions, returned by same route Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/603/comment/15196/
