What a Difference.
by sandman  29 Mar 2016
What a difference, two years ago this hill was the 900th highest on the MV list but now is outside the top 1000th. Parking in the Glengesh viewpoint G6882085959 A and walking back up to where the fence runs uphill this will take you up quickly to the summit area. You can return by way of accent or choose as i did to continue on to Glengesh Hill. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1079/comment/18476/
