Followed Liz 50's excellent instructions and did as a single 'bag' as i skipped this on a previous circuit of the area due to inclement weather on the day. Well worth doing even as a single great views over Kylemore Abbey and Diamond Hill Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/648/comment/23800/
