New Comment: 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/
