by Buny Clare  22 Mar 2006
Climbed Cush last Sunday 19-3-06 .Started from car park beside Clydagh river R875 278 A.
Magnificient day, so clear. I came down opposite Galtybeg. and then i went up to look at BorheenLake (the eyedrop),I retraced my steps , turned west back to the car park. I had not
climbed Cush for over five years and i was surprised to find a track almost all the way up to the summit. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/215/comment/2241/
