A Pleasant Diversion
by Pepe  5 Jul 2015
Climbed this along with nearby Garrylaurence on way from Waterford to Cork, a pleasant diversion adding less than two hours in total to the journey. Directions for both tops by other posters were spot on, though the 'ok path' as mentioned by jackill has been churned up now by heavy machinery meaning that water lodges heavily on it so be prepared to get the boots muddy. Picturesque lake on the left on the way up has a nice bench seat now, and a little boardwalk leading out to it. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1237/comment/18169/
