Driving to Limerick every day and looking up at Cullaun just out side of Rearcross, today I said why not. The weather was mighty, a good blast of frost last night ensured the ground was sound, maybe a little to hard. I approached Cullaun from the Rearcross to Newport road near the Clare river. I followed the Slieve Feliim Way as far as Sliabh Eibhlinne. I then left the forest track and headed for the summit of Cullaun. The climb was easy enough but had to take my time due to a recent injury. the views of Limerick and Tipperary were mighty on the day. The walk was took us about four hours. well worth it.
