Followed the description of Fergalh, crossed the gate, took few steps and that was it. Also drove bit further up on the Ballinakill Road to the electricity masts. Fab views of Mt. Leinster, Blackstairs Mt., Slievenamon, Brandon Hill, Coppanagh. Did I also see Comeragh Mts. and Slieve Bloom? Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1125/comment/17545/
