Many thanks to mcrtchly. thomas g for summary on Tower Hill. followed their excellent advice about true summit. started at S44662 18440 A, from here across the road through the fields to the top took me approx 10mins of easy walking, in the first field there a curious looking small concrete water tower. Fantastic views towards Croughaun and the Comeraghs from here.. Distance from car to car approx 1.2km. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1236/comment/17547/
