Delightful Walk
by Pepe  16 Nov 2015
A delightful little walk, just the thing to keep the cold winter blues away. Great views up top.
To go directly to the hill from the Murphy's Lane carpark at A, go through the barrier up behind the mapboard and turn right. Ten minutes from there to the summit. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1180/comment/18388/
