Look out for the mines!
by eamonoc  21 Mar 2014
Climbed Carrickgollogan today started at O 22548 20346 starA, followed directions from previous comments, it took 11mins from the car park to the summit. The views were fantastic today, noticed chimney like structure poking its head above trees to the south from summit. Decided to investigate, the structure is a Leadmine Chimney Flue. The mines were called Ballycorus Lead Mines which opened in 1807, closed in 1913. This Chimney flue is the only example of such a one to have been built in Ireland. So if you have the inclination to climb Carrickgollogan, it is well worth paying a visit to this interesting site. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1180/comment/15935/
