Small bump on the way somewhere else
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  24 Jun 2014
Really just a stopping point on the way to Bencorrbeg, this bump doesn't have enough prominence to feature in any lists. It is usually approached from Bencorr or from Bencollaghduff. It is the first rocky prominence on the spur running north from Bencorr. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/185/comment/4945/
