This is officially an Arderin Beg, but to be honest it is barely visible as a separate entity and the 'summit' consists of a small cairn of sorts perched precariously on the edge of a low peat hag. Having said that the surrounding panoramas are magnificent. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1412/comment/20849/
