Reaching Slievemore from Benbulbin involves a long slog across the bog. It was made somewhat more challenging by the amount of holes in the ground along the way. Many of these were several feet deep, some with steep sides. My photo shows one at G726 463 I, next to the fence near the summit of Slievemore. This one was about 20 feet deep and had steep sides, so a fall in here would be very dangerous. I don't know why the bog is littered with these holes, or whether they appear slowly or suddenly collapse.

To reach the summit of Slievemore involves crossing a sturdy wire fence, and there was none of the usual easy crossing spots. There is nothing to mark the actual summit, and this mountain is much better viewed from the ridge north to Benwiskin. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/282/comment/4090/
