Follow the boreen to the trig pillar
by Fergalh  29 Jun 2023
Rather than climbing over walls from Dun Eochla to get to the trig Pillar at An Droim Rua there is an easier way. At the western end of the tower there is a narrow borreen. Follow this as far as just west of the trig pillar. There is no wall here and than cross a ditch and cross the field east to the wall where there is the trig pillar built into the wall. This field also has a curiousity from The Emergency (The Second world war) Éire 50" stones on the ground. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1371/comment/23998/
