Stunning views from Craganamurragh
by csd  18 Apr 2010
I have to admit, I wasn't expecting much from Cragnamurragh. Comments regarding scars on the landscape and unrelenting bog put me in a rather negative frame of mind. In the event, however, I was pleasantly surprised. I came over from Moylussa, following the bog road/scar thing, and after our unusually dry winter and early spring it was almost completely dry. I can see how things would be different in the wet, though. The other thing that surprised me was how fantastic the views were. A broad sweep of the country was visible, from Dromineer and the northern half of Lough Derg, to Thomond Park and Limerick city, the Shannon Estuary and Moneypoint, all the way to the mountains of Kerry looming in the distance. Fantastic, and for this reason I suggested Cragnamurragh as a top 100 summit. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/401/comment/4641/
