The top of Moylussa is flat, boggy and non-descript with no obvious summit. The map shows 2 separate 'peaks' both listed as 532 m. By my reckoning Moylussa is the highest point in Co. Clare - though I've seen Glenagalliagh listed as the highest despite it being about 200 feet lower? There is an easy ridge walk across to Cragnamurragh. However it can be very boggy in wet weather. The views should be excellent but on 3 separate climbs I've yet to get clear weather. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/390/comment/568/
