Sligo CHP and don't forget about Leitrim.
by TommyV  5 Nov 2018
As mentioned by simon3, the route follows a paved road all the way to the large mast at the summit. The trig point marking the Sligo county high point lies behind the mast. To take in the cairn marking the Leitrim county high point head South East for a few hundred metres to a small cairn. After simply rejoin the road and follow it back down. Two CHP's in one easy walk! Lovely views out to the West. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/201/comment/20198/
