A Rare Visitor.
by sandman  5 Apr 2017
As i drove thru Murrisk many visitors and pilgrims were ascending Croagh Patrick but this was not the case with Balloor which is located close to Louisburg accessible via the L18281 a very narrow road on the left side of the hill, so parking should be at your own discretion. You need to make your way to L8191681574 A where you can gain entry to a field covered in gorse but fear not many cattle tracks allow an easy accent to the summit where you will be rewarded with fine coastal and inland views.
