After Little Carron I continued on the Ballyhoura way to Carron. The summit of this mountain is marked by a large cairn, this summit is about 300 meters from the co-ordinates given here.
There are pleasent views over the plains of Limerick to the north and west to the highlands of Kerry. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/653/comment/2803/
