I was 'persuaded' across the Beenkeragh Ridge in Feb. 2001 from Beenkeragh to Carrauntoohil! The day was bright and clear with magnificent views up and down!
I will never forget my first view of the ridge, frightening but the awe inspiring view of
majestic Carrauntoohil beckoned me on! Picture shows Beenkeragh ridge from Carrauntoohil
