jackill on Gullaba Hill, 2009

After having the heart put crossways in me by the lifesize cardboard cut-out of Kilgarvans most famous son (after the tailor Quill) , Jackie Healy-Rae I headed up the road past the motor museum and on through the 13' high tunnel. I parked on the sharp bend at W02056 66620 A and walked around the bend and up a thoughtfully provided track towards the mountains. The track was soon replaced by various tractor created ruts- these were a constant companion all the way over the wet ground to the summit of Knocknamanagh NE Top. From there I crossed the broad shallow col to Gullaba. Through the breaks in the cloud were views down to Kilgarvan and the inlet of Kenmare and down to the lower summit of Bird Hill. Bird Hill gives its name to a rock formation of grey-green sandstone and purple siltstone laminated beds. Lamination is quite rare in siltstones. Below in Kilgarvan the bed rock is Old Red Sandstone at over 6000 meters thickness. This rock was once at the botton of the ocean in the Munster Basin but curiously it is non-marine in origin which suggests a massive subsidence in the area. Coming down from Gulluba Hill I passed numerous flat , scored rocks echoing the terrible energy of the retreating glaciers during the last ice age. I crossed the Gortacreenteen stream to the left bank to descend and met a good track coming down to the main road. Please note this track looks as though it may be from a nearby farmhouse. I rejoined the road at W017 676 B and walked along the road to the start. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/265/comment/2561/
