To complete this top or An Bheann Mhór in isolation, suggest you take the track that leads from the valley to the SW of Coomcallee - the track continues all the way to the col between Coomcallee and this top. From there it is a fairy easy climb to the west over grassy terrain. The summit itself is little to look at and I had to wander around with my GPS before I finally located the small pile of stones which seems to mark the highest point. The ordinary nature of the top was compensated however when a sheep farmer called out to me and pointed skywards, where a pair of white tailed eagles were soaring majestically. Later on spotted several more of the birds which can have an impressive wingspan of over two metres. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/152/comment/14882/
