I would echo the comments posted here regarding the horrible bogginess of the summit. I climbed this on a wet and rainy day and did not spend long on the top. The sun began to shine halfway down and I spotted a fox, two kestrels and plenty of small heath butterfly. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/299/comment/3260/
