This mountain is typical of so many of the lower mountains in the Slieve Blooms in that it is covered in forestry and so you feel very underwhelmed having reached the top. If it wasn't for its height into the 400s you would never feel inclined to go anywhere near it. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/796/comment/3012/
