Glengesh Valley.
by sandman 29 Mar 2016
The valley more famous than the hill as a result of a fine view point at the car park and picnic area but the summit area is hidden from view . A nice walk across from Croaghavehy but please note the track which is shown between the two hills originate from the west. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1069/comment/18477/
