Three legged friend
by eamonoc  13 Feb 2014
On Thursday 6th Feb I ascended Ballaghmore Hill.Started at S 58898 94220 starA, Climbed over gate and followed rough farm track uphill past some sheds until I reached another two gates, track very mucky here, climbed gate and headed uphill to the right towards communications mast clearly visible from gates. This is all farm land with a lot of grazing cattle, no one around to enquire about access. It was nice to see this hill made it onto Mt Views because it invokes many pleasant memories for me, the last time I was up what I knew as Ballyprior Hill was about 1986, then I was a mere strap of a lad who regularly ran up here with my faithful four legged friend Schooner, he sadly got a leg caught in a snare and became my three legged friend. Undaunted he still made the trip many times after that. I was a bit dissappointed to see that Ballaghmore is now crowned with two communication masts. Still though, thanks Mt Views for the memories. Nice views in all directions especially towards Wicklow Mts. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1194/comment/15834/

A handy hill for the local 100
by High-King  4 Sep 2021
Needed to climb Ballaghmore Hill for my local 100. No great challenge. Left Stradbally behind me and drove up the hill towards Arles/Carlow. At the top of the hill I pulled in at the forestry entrance. There is an agricultural gate on the left that has a "Beware of the bull" sign.. I went up to the forestry barrier and found a path right on the left. I followed this path along the edge of the forest. Whe the path topped out I entered the field. The masts are clearly visible. I walked through the field to the top. Whole trip is under a half hour. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1194/comment/23262/
