Bog Road Walk with Great Mountain Views
Short Summary created by ciarraioch,  12 Apr 2014
The easiest way to arrive to this hill is as follows: Travel north around 5 miles along along the Killarney/Tralee road until you come to the 'Lawlor's Cross' junction with signposts on the right for Kilcummin and Gneeveguilla. Follow the road for 4.4 km. Known locally as Faill Buí, your turning off point is on the left, very nearly at the top of the second large hill on the route W00417 96175 A. This is the access to the area of high bog-land. The tarred road passes by a farm house and shortly after that becomes a gravelled road. If the road has been recently maintained, you can drive on as far as you dare. Go left on all junctions from this until you reach W01375 97885 B. Take the track to the right going east (not shown on map). This shortly turns due north and just beyond the end of the gravel lies the trig point.
Although your walk is on a bog road, the view of the mountains of Dingle, Iveragh, Killarney and into North Cork are hard to beat. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1114/comment/15358/

Mountain Panorama in the Kingdom
by ciarraioch  12 Apr 2014
TJ Barrington in his 1970's tome 'Discovering Kerry' says that the finest view of the mountains in Kerry is to be obtained from this point. To the north west, the mountains of the Dingle peninsula are on display all the way to the Blaskets and Inis na Bró to the far west. To the north, Castleisland, and on a very clear day, the waves can be seen crashing on Kerry Head. To the south, every hill from Mount Hillary near Mallow to the Mountain Stage near Cahersiveen lies before you, with particularly good aspects of the Paps, Mangerton, Tomies and the Reeks. The spires of Killarney and the Lakes beyond are nearby to the south west. If the light is right, Dingle Bay and the sandspit of Inch are clearly visible. In the far distance to the east, can (on occasion) be seen the Ballyhouras and Galtees.
This unnamed summit lies on elevated bog that separates the parishes of Kilcummin and Currow, and the baronies of Trughanacmy and Magunihy. This is an ancient division. In the early Christian period, it represented the border between the Ciarraighe Luachra to the north and the Eoghanacht Locha Léin to the south, in the medieval times between the Lordships of the Earls of Desmond and the McCarthys, and in Elizabethan times between the counties of Kerry and Desmond.
The summit is also on the approximate dividing line between the cultural area of Sliabh Luachra to the east and south east (known primarily for Gaelic poets of the 18th century and an Irish music genre of the 20th) and the more agriculturally productive areas of mid-Kerry to the west.

So if you want some good views and an easy walk through a working bog, this is the one for you.
The attached photo is actually from Old Kilcummin graveyard to the south west of the summit, but it gives a flavour of the views to be had. I will replace it in due course. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1114/comment/15991/
