(Climbed Sunday 13th) From Benwiskin summit (see for second stage of walk) it is a case of retracing your steps the 1.4K to Spot Height 508m (G719479 F). From here a bearing of 167 degrees South for 1.4K should take you level with a u-shaped breach in the cliff face (G724466 G) with its framed picture of Oughtagorey & Gleniff far below (see picture). From here it’s a little over 500m on a bearing of 121 degrees SE to the summit of Slievemore crossing a fence on the way. The mist which had persistently masked the summits of Truskmore & Tievebaun throughout the day spread across to Slievemore as I made its summit further reducing visibility down into the valley. On my way to Slievemore (and roughly around 550m from Spot Height 508) I encountered a Celtic Cross sited on a newly made concrete plinth (G721473 H). A shovel, bucket and some straight edges lay nearby. The cross itself is obviously old and there is evidence of an inscription, sadly long faded and illegible on it. The front of the plinth appears to have a place for a plaque or plate. I wonder if it is commemorative in nature either for an individual or, perhaps, for victims of the Famine? Maybe it is associated with a Mass Rock or something. Can anyone shed any light on this? After reaching Slievemore I decided to make for home as there were not enough daylight hours left to make for Truskmore & Tievebaun. Maintaining a bearing of 247 degrees SW for 2.5K I then took a bearing of 281 degrees West which took me up and over the southern end of Benbulbin’s ridge and the steep descent to the track for the short walk back to the car. Overall, the Benbulbin-Benwiskin-Slievemore circuit was a little short of 17K. A most enjoyable walk despite the poor weather. On a better day it would have been spectacular! Trackback:
