Crockauns is mentioned in Mountaineering in Ireland [Claude Wall] so: "The Castlegal Mountains, south of Glencar, are somewhat neglected owing to the proximity of the Dartry range, but they provide a good ridge walk with many rock outcrops on a moderate scale. ... This range rejoices in the Gaelic name of Slieve gan Baiste or 'the mountains without rain'." Like Claude we had a rain free day there!

While near the summit we suddenly saw a large predatory bird flying beneath us, which appeared to have artificially bright colours. Judging by other GPS sightings as recorded here http://www.goldeneagle.ie/portal.php?z=226 we were seeing Conall, a male Golden Eagle chick originally released in Glenveagh National Park in 2009.

The photo shows Crockauns from the west. Surprisingly the ground underfoot on Crockauns is shortish grass, while most of the ridge from where the photo is taken is covered in heather on bog which is 1 to 2 m deep. There is an abrupt transition between the two forms of landcover which seems to be natural. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/570/comment/4301/
