Fenced-in summit with good views
by markwallace  30 Mar 2016
Small as this hill is, it has a biggish, well-constructed summit cairn, and has nice views over Ballynakill Harbour, Twelve Bens, and the North Connemara coastline. Mweelrea, Croagh Patrick and Achill also visible on a clear day. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1044/comment/18479/
