Small Hill but Big History
by Fergalh  16 Oct 2020
Followed Sandman's route to the top of this quite historical hill. This was the seat of the last High King of West Munster Cú Roi MacDaire who was killed by his great rival Cú Chulainn in a duel in 1 AD. Easy enough climb on another dull day Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/803/comment/20939/
