Ever met a million rural midges?
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman, simon3, jackill  17 Aug 2012
Approach from Glenveagh along the R254. Park in the small slipway carpark at B92918 12363 A, room for 5-6 cars. Walk northeast along the road for 1km, to a bridge. Go left and follow the Sruhancrolee stream northwest over marshy ground before ascending steeply next to a small waterfall. As the ground becomes less steep, around B920137 B, leave the stream and go W across a boggy kilometre to the small summit cairn on an otherwise featureless grass covered plateau. Return by way of ascent. If you climb here in summer months bring midge repellant. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/396/comment/5155/
