as a birthday surprise all in family agreed for an after dinner walk up Mount Gable!
Three boys 9, 6 & 3 , enjoyed a windy wet , bog walk in mid Jan. as the normally soft ground is much firmer, if you step lightly and swiftly!
fantastic panoramic views over loughs corrib and mask, and across the plains of mayo turning south to galway.
easy walk for first timers , 3yr did it. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/758/comment/14947/
