The peat-hag capital of Connemara
by markwallace  4 Jan 2017
The descent from Benbaun to the R344 via Knockpasheemore/Binn Charrach is hard going after a day in the Bens. The Knockpasheemore ridge looks nice and flat from below, but is boggy, undulating and crossed by innumerable peat hags, making straight progress impossible. There are also a number of small summits along the ridge, all of which the anxious peak-bagger will feel compelled to visit lest they suddenly morph into MV-listed peaks at some point in the future. Nice views indeed from Knockpasheemore summit, but they're the same ones you'll have seen from Benbaun.

If descending from Knockpasheemore to the R344, note that a stile has been erected over the fence at around L809571 F. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/775/comment/18793/
