Much tree felling has taken place this summer on Ballyscanlon Hill. It now looks as if there might even be a new experience up there: ie a view from the top! Saw it from a few miles distant and unfortunately hadn't time to take a photo, but it looks totally different now and much of it is minus the surfeit of trees mentioned in the other two comments.
