Little to add except that the views from these summits are some of the finest in the country with the whole of the Iveragh peninsula visible. The view in the photo is looking east to the Magillicuddy Reeks with the Dunkerrons to the right of these. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/562/comment/17803/
