The day we were there it happened that rain was receding north and there were views to the west. The picture shows Knocknarea and Queen Maeve's Tomb at around 290 degrees bearing on the skyline and 47.2km distant. To the left and on the skyline is Slieve Daeane and the rising ground to the right is Killerry Mtn. Also partially visible was Nephin Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/337/comment/20864/
