Dull top with little to recommend
by Colin Murphy  26 May 2015
This is an unremarkable summit in every sense. The trudge to it along the ridge that runs from SW to NE is a tedious one, uneven bog covered in heather, although the slope is very gentle. The summit itself is a small bump of upraised bog with a bit of a boulder peeking through. Purely for the baggers. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/544/comment/18003/
