From some angles Burren I think could be an interesting lump.
Unfortunately on the day of my visit it was covered in fog and drenched in spitting rain.
I had intended to ascend from the east on the track at W38131 78642 but found this whole side of the mountain peppered in "private land" signs. Instead I made a some what longer ascent through farm land (less than ideal but didn't meet anyone) from W36490 78617. As of October 2009 there was evidence of lots of windfarm activity around adding to the challenge of access.
I passed an interesting memorial underneath Burren at Bawnmore crossroads. It commemorates a soup house that operated near the cross during the great famine and remembers all those who died during that time. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/867/comment/4224/
