Possibly the highest point on the hill !.
by Harry Goodman  4 Aug 2015
This photograph shows the large erratic on the summit area of Moylemore and which visually, at least, appears to mark the highest point on the hill. The small pile of stones on the right was needed to help me climb up onto the boulder some 2 metres high. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1379/comment/18226/
