I can't believe this hill hasn't been commented on, considering it's position close to a very busy viewing point. If you park at the Connor Hill viewpoint on the highest point of the Connor Pass Q4904805584 starA and just head West up the well-trodden track, 15 minutes will get you to the cairn at Q4856905621 starB and another 3 or 4 minutes to the highest point. I imagine that many people climb this short half km,70 metre ascent to get photo op's, then with their panoramas of the Dingle Peninsula complete, head back down to their car, bike or whatever transport they arrived in/on. I have a pic of the summit, a relatively flat, unexciting place in itself, but what a vantage point. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/521/comment/6406/
