30 years farming, the same time I have been walki .. by Jimmy Barry   (Show all for Lough Curra Mtn)

"the dog the wife and I" jackill there are signs every where in the Glen NO DOGS ALLOWED, and especally at this time of year. My dog jess comes from a sheep farm on the side of Galtymore but she will never be taken back to the mountains because I know and respect the people who make a living from these mountains. Some months ago in the same area dogs killed a lot of sheep, is it any wonder that they dont want dogs on the mountains. Next time leave the dog at home or take him for a walk in the woods.
As for Lough Curra mtn, its not a mountain its a morain like all the other morains in ireland. It never was never will be and to call it a mountain is just wrong wrong wrong, (sorry its the dog thing it got to me). Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/277/comment/4567/
