Wonderful Panarama at the top

Parked at the gate on a minor road with room for one car at V43887153 A. I headed through heather, bog & scrub to the fence. I crossed this and shortly afterwards there is an old track that winds up the western side of the hill to the summit. For a little hill a lot of effort is needed due to the ground conditions, however the view makes it worthwhile. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1285/comment/20668/
