Picture: Slieve Daeane Trig with Killerry Mtn in background
by paddyhillsbagger  22 Apr 2011
Forgive me father for I have sinned. It has been over 6 months since I have visited one of Ireland's high spots. Life, the wife, the grand-kids, an on-line course and the weather got in the way. For penance I did 4 local tops to get back in the swing. My boots expired on the 1st top, Slieve Daeane. My trousers ripped on the 2nd, Killerry and it rained on the 3rd, Benbo. Thank goodness I left spare clothing and footwear in the car!
Slieve Daeane is a delightful little top which is easily accessed via the Sligo Way. The trig point is easily spotted from the Sligo Way where a short heather and bog trot leads to the top where fine views are offered. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/978/comment/6309/

Picture: Lake of the two geese
Mystic Lake ( Lough Dhá Géanna )
by swoop  15 May 2011
Under Sliabh Dá Éan ('mountain of two birds) lies a small but beautiful hidden lake.
Legend has it that got its name Lough Dhá Géanna from the story of king Sweeney. Sweeny was a king condemned by an angry cleric to wander, naked and nervous as a bird throughout Ireland.Any sharp sound , like the ringing of a bell, would send Sweeney into madness. Because of the curse he began to levitate and move about like a bird. Being bird-like he could never trust humans but fled from place to place, naked and hungry. Near Lough Gill, in the eastern Ox mountains , Sweeney fought with a Cailleach, a wise woman, and both of them in their struggle transformed into geese and dived into the lake. Never to be seen again.

Its an amazingly still place, you can hear the silence. The lakes water is bog brown, the stone ring surrounding it is bleached white. A mystical site worth the walk. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/978/comment/6350/
