A hill close to my heart
by hibby  18 Feb 2024
I grew up near Carrickgollogan, but it was better known as Kattie Gallagher, or just "the hill". The view from our kitchen window was dominated by the N-S ridge of the hill, with the handsome bald dome of the summit at one end and the lead mines chimney at the other. Over the course of the year the sun set at different points along the ridge.

It is deservedly a very popular place to walk, with wonderful views to the coast and nearby hills. There's a good network of forest roads and tracks, mainly firm underfoot. There is a short section near the chimney that is usually muddy.

Today we went up with our recently adopted dog, Benji. We parked in the car park on Murphy's Lane and walked directly to the summit, which took about 15 minutes. The ascent of the quartzite summit dome is steep enough to create a sense of achievement while still being manageable for children and small dogs!

From the summit, we visited the chimney and then looped back to the car, for a total of 3 km. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1180/comment/24138/
