I climbed Carron along with Little Carron today starting from the trailhead at A. The weather was unrelentingly wet with a Met office Yellow warning for rain in County Limerick...my two dogs who were dragged along for a short Sunday walk were not amused. I did enjoy it though and would recommend saving it for good weather! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/653/comment/18311/
