Where's the castle?
by jackill  5 Jul 2019
I've spent a lot of time over the years contributing to MountainViews but in the last few years I've slowly cut back the addiction and replaced it with helping out in the local scout group in Fermoy.
For the scout group it means they get dragged up mountains at least once a month.
This photo was taken on our end of year hike last month which took in Galtybeg and Greenane.
Unfortunately I had sold it as a hillwalk to O'Loughlins Castle.

Fine if you know that it's not actually a castle!

Let's just say my complaints box is now full. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/53/comment/20574/
