New Comment: Wolf has no teeth
by Colin Murphy  3 Sep 2021
Another dull Slieve Bloom mountain, really just for baggers. The only thing that aroused my curiosity was the unusual trig pillar, which is the height of a man and an odd shape. (See pic). It occurred to me that perhaps it wasn't odd at all, but that the base part is possibly the original foundation, and the surrounding level of bog has either been eroded away or possibly removed by turf-cutting.
