Well worth the walk - even from the wrong direction
by tomasocarthaigh  1 May 2014
I came up the wrong face, over fields and bog not on paths, to spite my best efforts to follow the "maer ditch" by kind permission of a local landowner. It was worth it though, the views that end are spectacular.

Coming down the correct path, and walking to Edenmore via Mallons Cross, Aughadowery Cross was a walk in itself.

As a writer - according to myself, I wrote these few words after: http://www.writingsinrhyme.com/index.php/cairn-hill-stanzas-from-the-summit/ Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/974/comment/16048/
