Great views for little effort

Living locally I separated the Keelogyboys and Hangmans Hill into a few shorter climbs. With the possible exception of Hangmans Hill the SW Top offers the best views of the bunch, and can be completed with the main Keelogyboy top readily. Keelogyboy is signposted off the R278, about 2km east of Calry church. The road eventually gives way to a track and I parked my car at a gate into a field at approx. G76039 39187 G. From aim for the gap between the main top and the SW top - it's about a 700m walk across relatively flat heathery type land and is very obvious from where you park. From there it's a short steep stroll up around the back of the mountain to the peak, avoiding the cliffs. Great views from here all the way from Lough Gill, to Sligo Town, Knocknarea, Sligo Bay and Copes Mountain. Once you descend back into the gap it's a similar scramble north up to the main Keelogyboy peak. Out and back to the car, visiting the 2 peaks took 1hr 15 minutes on a cool January afternoon. Very rewarding views and just enough strenuous climbing to make you feel like you've earned it! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/751/comment/20749/
