As Carrigatuke is one of a few hills remaining on .. by Harry Goodman   (Show all for Carrigatuke)

Did Carrigatuke two Sundays ago by cycling out from Newry via Newtownhamilton. You can cycle all the way to the summit, as there is a mast. Very fortunate that there is a mast, as I was prepared for the heavy showers that were forecast, but not for the thunderstorm which came on suddenly just as I got off my bike at the summit and was reaching for my camera to snap the view. It was quite reassuring to think that the mast would take the hit rather than me. It was also vaguely reassuring to think that at least I was on Carrigatuke, rather than Deadman's Hill, which is a neighbouring hill a couple of kilometres away! Will get you a photo the next time...
