Nice little hill
by muschi  20 Jan 2014
Visited this summit in early Dec 2013, looking for foliage to make an advent wreath, there are many mature Noble Fir trees throughout the plantation.
There is a car park on Murphy's Lane at O 22548 20346 A. From there walk East along a good track through the wood to the summit, which is cone shaped, clear of trees and offers good views of the surrounding area. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1180/comment/15797/
