Following on from other comments, I'm surprised nobody mentioned the strange abandonned satelitte dish and tin hut plonked on the walk from Baunreaghcong to Ridge of Capard. It certainly stands out in a terrain of featureless bog and heather. Wicklore has divulged many stories about the hills and has climbed this top, so is there any information on this Laois Listenning Post? Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/505/comment/3907/
