Just found the photo on my phone this morning! I took this photo at 3am one Saturday morning last June, struggling home from a few bevvies in Manorhamilton.

Benbo dominates the view from my kitchen window and from my view is one of the more shapely north Leitrim mountains. Good views from the summit in all directions, particularly over the glens. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/761/comment/20745/
