National Monument
by Barry  27 Jan 2015
May be worth noting that the summit cairn here, as described at IG02437 03060 D below is a National Monument - must be remains of an ancient burial cairn or boundary marker perhaps. There's another site approx 150 metres SSE of this. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/335/comment/17818/
