We, my 'old' friend and I, set off on thursday for Ben Duff having cancelled on wednesday due to heavy rain. Thursday was just scattered with heavy showers. Take the road nearly opposite Moneygall Garda Station on the N7. Turn left after the row of two story houses. Travel uphill for a mile or so. Take the first right. Follow the road until a fork, turn right. We parked at a wide clearing on the left after a mile or so. We felt we were cheating as the views were good already and we were 200 to 300 feet above the expanse. We headed through a grass field full of inquisitive cattle. Then we got over a fence on to the fire break in the forestry. The fire break was slightly soggy and overgrown in parts. We paused to look back at the flat plain below and the other mountains in the distance to the west, the Aughty's and Clare, to the south Keeper and the Silvermines(Slieve Shallee). We feared the tree line but were rewarded for our so far dry climb with a heather and grass summit and a wonderful vista from the cairn. Loughderg lay to the west with Clare and its mountains beyond. The compass told us the aughty's and the south showed us the 'Bit', Borrisnoe and Knockanora with its visible cairn, down to the Slieve Felims, Keeper etc. The mighty Shannon in flood stretched to the north. To the east lay the Slieve Ardagh hills and beyong the Wicklow Mountains and Mt. Leinster. The Sleive Blooms lay to the north east. Clouds had rolled by but we did catch a shower though our spirits were not dampened. A hawk caught our eye and we followed its patrol along the tree line as it hovered and hunted. We lingered a while before heading onto Borrisnoe(Which is not listed on MV yet and in fairness with some justification). We went down a ridge to the edge of the tree line/grass land. We traversed a small steam, under some wire over a fence and out through 2 grass fields and home. Ben Duff was worth the climb of about 1100 ft of its 455 metres. Linkback:
