We had an easy walk to the summit from Ben Bury. But of course all the hard work was done on the "Ramp" to get to there. Thank goodness for a good day, because someone on the top said that only one day in three gives views, we got that one day. Superb views of all the mountain ranges of Mayo, Galway and further afield, as well as dainty little islands in the Atlantic. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/34/comment/4195/
