Three legged friend
by eamonoc  13 Feb 2014
On Thursday 6th Feb I ascended Ballaghmore Hill.Started at S 58898 94220 A, Climbed over gate and followed rough farm track uphill past some sheds until I reached another two gates, track very mucky here, climbed gate and headed uphill to the right towards communications mast clearly visible from gates. This is all farm land with a lot of grazing cattle, no one around to enquire about access. It was nice to see this hill made it onto Mt Views because it invokes many pleasant memories for me, the last time I was up what I knew as Ballyprior Hill was about 1986, then I was a mere strap of a lad who regularly ran up here with my faithful four legged friend Schooner, he sadly got a leg caught in a snare and became my three legged friend. Undaunted he still made the trip many times after that. I was a bit dissappointed to see that Ballaghmore is now crowned with two communication masts. Still though, thanks Mt Views for the memories. Nice views in all directions especially towards Wicklow Mts. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1194/comment/15834/
