Picture: Summit Area.
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 B'loor (L81916 81574) 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.
