Slievebawn
by quarryman  16 Aug 2023
Very easy but very rewarding walk. We were there on a warm day in August. Walk from the carpark at the entrance to the road up Mt Leinster. When you reach the summit keep going; the views are beautiful and you find yourself on a broad ridge with views to either side of the farmland below. The contrast between the purple heather and the rich green of the valleys was beautiful. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/412/comment/24017/
