Doonan Waterfall
by Val Jones  24 Aug 2018
Parked as described by bryanmccabe, and followed the path up. Doonan waterfall was in full spate, we mightn't have noticed it if we hadn't heard it. I wondered what the sluice gate type structure above the waterfall actually is for, and also some other items on the way up to Belshade, including the TV aerial, solar panel, and another item covered in plastic on the dam at the lake outflow.
Unfortunately the river was too strong coming out of the lake to cross, so we didn't get to any summit. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/209/comment/20028/
