Small hill but brilliant views
by Fergalh  24 Mar 2014
Park just after forest starts there is room for on car here (M24099 88719 A) walk back to the three small fields beside forest and proceed to top of fields where there is a few rough tracks on short little climb to large cairn at summit really wonderful views from here.

Always ask landowner permission to cross land, never ever damage fences and beware of livestock. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1297/comment/15940/
