A gem in Kilkenny
Short Summary created by wicklore,  25 Jul 2010
Park at S33125 66710 A and go through the gate to find your way onto the hill. The summit lies about 1.5 kms away across varied terrain. Clomantagh is the third highest hill in Kilkenny, and is quite different from many hills in the South Midlands. It has exposed limestone, and dry stone walls similar to those in the west of Ireland. Windswept trees and ledges of exposed rock add to the beauty of this hill. Single strand electric fencing parallel to most of the dry stone walls should be treated with caution as they could be live. Also in the summer cattle on the hill may try to chase you - if so wave your arms and shout to ward them off. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/902/comment/5661/
