Simple ascent to so-so summit.
by Colin Murphy  29 Jun 2021
An easy little hill to bag, with decent tracks leading almost to the very top, where upon leaving the track a trek through heather of about 150m is required to reach the high point, which is unmarked. Good views of the Caherbarnaghs but otherwise an unremarkable top. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/522/comment/23188/
