My summit Day
by ShaunDunne  9 Apr 2018
I Climbed Brandon Hill with my Grand dad on Sunday 8/4/2018.
It was a lovely climb. The weather was great when we started, but the summit was covered in Cloud. As we approached the final 100mtr to the summit it started to rain, but not too heavy.
It was a fun climb and I really enjoyed it, especially as the rain stopped after about 15 minutes.
There was a big cross on the summit as well as the Trig Point.
We had our lunch at the cross before we descended again. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/423/comment/19889/
