Irelands largest wild animal
by Colin Murphy  3 Oct 2014
Torc West Top is unmarked by a cairn or other prominence. However it is a fairly well-defined grassy mound with great views over the lakes of Killarney and towards Torc mountain itself. On my descent I stumbled upon (almost literally) a small group of Red Deer. Luckily they didn't flee too far before I could get a snap. Strikingly large and beautiful animals close up. Apparently they are Ireland's largest wild animal, or so I read. Having come within about 10 metres of them, I can't disagree with that. The larger animal in the shot came almost to my shoulder.
