Bencorr's close relative
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  25 Jun 2014
This 'top' does not have sufficient prominence to register on any lists and is usually done in conjunction with Bencorr or as part of Glencoaghan Horseshoe. it is 300 to the NW of Bencorr itself and rises from a col just 20m or so below, although on all other sides it has a fairy precipitous drop. It has a well defined summit with a cairn and has wonderful views of the horseshoe and Lough Inagh to the east. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/124/comment/4884/
