Climbed Croaghonagh this evening with my wife and enjoyed superb views from the summit.NB. Be aware that due to new windfarm development that security prevent access to the forestry track. We were turned away at the quarry by security personnel on a Sunday evening! We followed the electric poles from adjacent to the carpark on the N15 to the track near the summit. Tough going through thick heather and long grass, but worth it for the view. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/618/comment/20803/
