Gaining height?
by paddyhillsbagger  3 Feb 2014
Followed Dessie1's route to the top and the first thing that strikes you are the multitude of warning signs on the path up! Private Property, Keep To The Path, Working Quarry etc. On and on they go the whole way. The views however are excellent, Croghan Hill is clearly seen rising out of the flat bogland below, that is if you climb the tower and pop out on the ramparts. Does this add a few extra metres to the height? Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1265/comment/15824/
