Did as an option to try and get up and down before bad weather arrived (failed in that one). However a good alternative to the Galtees for a short accessable hike. Best thing was we disturbed a herd of deer on the summit. For some reason I've seen more wild deer in the knockmealdowns than anywhere else in Ireland. Proves that we haven't eaten all our wildlife - just most of it. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/415/comment/2942/
