Most central hill in Ireland??
by TommyV  5 Jul 2019
Heading North from the little village of Rosemount will bring you near this hill. I found parking beside an old abandoned house at N24222 42974 B and proceeded to walk up a road which leads to a house where the owners of the land reside. They were out cutting the lawn and had no problems showing me the best way to access the hill through their land. 15 minutes later I was back at the car. It dawned on me that this must be the most central hill in Ireland and so possibly the best place to view the plains of the midlands. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1293/comment/20132/
