Picture: Kilduff Mountain from the Devil's Bit
YoungJohn on Kilduff Mountain, 2010

Head out the Dunkerrin road from Templemore, about 3 miles out there is cross roads with a sign pointing to the right 'Roscrea 11' . Turn left, go up hill, follow the road til a T junction, turn left then nearlt immediately right and follow that road straight all the way (ignore any turns) til you find yourself on a forestry road with an old ruined farmhouse on your right. We parked there my Corkonian friend and I. We went uphill until we found a tubular gate. We went up this lane til we met a T junction and the top of Kilduff was plain to be seen. Simon3 described it well as cluttered! The views from Kilduff to the west were similar to those from the Devils Bit. Today did not disappoint as Loughderg was silver in the distance and the Aughtys, Keeper and Silvermines free of cloud. Slievenamon way to the south with the Galtees could be seen on the ascent. We headed back the same road but rather then turning left for the tubular gate we kept going straight and kept to the 'main' forestry road. This led us round the western side of the 'Bit and round the south of Little Rock before resting at the round castle. We headed back up towards the 'Bit up to its plateau and its trig. This is where one of the oldest fossils ever found was discovered in the 1990's. Down a cut and onto some boggy terrain before exiting near the 'tubular gate road' just before the gate itself. Down hill to our car and home. A grand walk with some beautiful rich views and challenges to the leg muscles. The sticks came in handy! Unfortunately I have no photo's of the sojourn yet. Linkback:
