Gorse grows!
by paddyhillsbagger  29 Jun 2021
Scaled in 2021 & the trig is becoming obscured by a chest high forest of gorse. Roughly South of the mast is a stonewall & even atop that the trig wasn't visible. Waded through the gorse & eventually found it. One for the list tickers! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1251/comment/23190/
