New Comment: No laughing matter
by Colin Murphy  15 Nov 2021
A local informed me that Gortagarry means 'Field of laughter' from gort (field) and gáire (laughter), but given the torture of hacking my way through the forested area of the summit, the experience was anything but humorous. Followed jackal's excellent route for an easy ascent up forest tracks, except for the last aforementioned 100m or so. Unless you're a bagger, stay away, because the hill will have the last laugh.
