Lonely top.
by paddyhillsbagger  14 Apr 2014
Despite only being a 5 minute drive out of Ballaghaderreen, Bockagh Hill has an air of desolation and loneliness about it. There were no tracks to the cross made out of railway lines and the ground was very uneven, boggy and full of heather (which would be tough in growing season). I don't think this cross is lit up at night!
