No pictures, due to a dull 29th December. No eponymous midges either. With adjoining tops of Cummer, Derrysallagh and perhaps also Feorus an entertaining deviation from the Bunane to Killaha section of the Beara Way was achieved. Access is no problem by this route and it is worth going some 200m SW of the apparent summit for a sneaky peek down to the upper Inchquin valley with two hanging lakes and to the vivid fields of what Simon3 refers to as 'Inchquin Park': a pay-in facility which has been the subject of some controversy. The walk took about 4 1/2 easy hours car to car, well suited to a wintry day Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/441/comment/2935/
