MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Claragh Mountain (<i>Clárach</i>) in area Derrynasaggart, Ireland
 
Uninspiring little hill.
by Colin Murphy  29 Jun 2021
Claragh enjoys an excellent view of Millstreet and features an ugly iron cross and an equally ugly antenna, if those can be counted as recommendations (no offence to residents of Millstreet). The picture shows a view of Claragh taken from Curracahill, which lies about 3km to the SW. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/615/comment/23187/
