Convenient car parking
by Colin Murphy  28 Feb 2022
To save yourself the initial road walk from the car park at Kate Kearney's, I'm pleased to report that there is now room to park almost at the starting point of the track at V8775 883. Had a very enjoyable climb up this mountain, with a good track almost the entire way, and was blessed to be granted a view of the Gap of Dunloe on our descent bathed in warm evening light, while silky cloud topped the nearby mountains.
