Another place to view the Hill of Allen from is the south. This photo was taken from the cyclable towpath of the Milltown Feeder, a water supply canal. It's curious how the major features of the hill such as the tower and enormous quarry are completely invisible from here. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1265/comment/18313/
