Slow down and let history reveal itself .. by wicklore   (Show all for Ballynalacken Hill)
 
Only 30 metres from road

Take the R694 out of Ballyraggart to Castlecomer. At the 5 way crossroads take the Ballinakill road. Proceed through the crossroads and just before forest park car at gate (S47622 75197 A). Cross gate and go to top of hill. Not interesting hill but wonderful views. Note road to Ballinakill from here gets very rough with many potholes.

Always ask landowner permission to cross land, never ever damage fences and beware of livestock. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1125/comment/15853/
