I didn't find eamonc's glasses on Bleanbeg but I did find plenty of these caterpillars. On consulting the MothsIreland website I found out they are Fox Moths. http://www.mothsireland.com/gallery3/Lasiocampidae/Lasiocampinae/66-008-Fox-Moth-Macrothylacia-rubi/1638-Fox-Moth-Macrothylacia-rubi-Moneycrookroe
You can get help to identify what you come across on the hills and add to the moth database when the ID is confirmed.
It's not only the fine views that make life interesting on the hills! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1084/comment/17668/
