Broken Trig Pillar to be replaced
by TommyMc  12 Feb 2019
The recent damage to the Croghan Hill trig pillar is covered in an article in this week's Offaly Independent.

The good news is that Offaly County Council plans to replace the damaged pillar to its original state.

Last year, the council purchased the land on which the hill is located. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1017/comment/20418/
