PLANE SPOTTING
by sandman  21 May 2012
En route home from the Dunkerron Mts on sunday last, I decided to break the journey and do some walking in W.Limerick / N.Kerry - Mullaghareirk Mts. First up, Mount Eagle and then to Ballinard.
Ballinard not a very exciting hill but a Mountain View summit non the less. Parked at forest enterance R0740711864 A - walked up forest road to R0785012127 B to a point where power lines are overhead - turn right at pole and head up hill for approx 30 meters where you will find a slight trace of quad tracks, follow these to fire-break at R0808712017 C, continue around to right following fire-break until you meet a barb wire fence at R0827111829 D - It is here you will have the best views back to the high mountains of Kerry - also at this point, as you are close to a flight path into Shannon so you can do some plane spotting. Turn left here and you will reach summit at R0835511880 E Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/783/comment/6808/

On Thu evening I climbed Mount Eagle via the road that leads to windfarm. It is worth the easy effort if only for the view of Slieve Mish and the Reeks and panorama all around. I then saw Ballinard across to NW and got to the top via a track that leads from the road 100 mtrs North from windfarm road entrance. Again the views as you ascend are spectacular.
