eflanaga on The Ravens Rock, 2007
by eflanaga  10 Nov 2007
With light fading as I left Foxes Rock, I pushed on as fast as possible to the summit of Ravens Rock, which has another small cairn on its small flat summit. A few photographs, one of the sun setting over Dundalk, and it was time to beat a fairly hasty retreat to the main Carlingford-Newry road via Ballinteskin. I had no sooner hit the main road (dark at this stage) than a very kind gentleman called Derek from Rostrevor stopped and offered me a lift. I gladly accepted as I didn’t fancy the 6K walk back to Cornamucklagh, especially in the dark and on such a busy & dangerous road. This walk enabled completion of all the Cooley hills on the MV site.
