A long story short
by Colin Murphy  7 Sep 2022
I did this as part of a three-top loop taking in Long, Laghtnafrankee and Laghtnafrankee SW, returning via the valley to the N to rejoin the track at roughly point S215 200 starE. Long Hill itself is aptly named, with a long gentle trek to the top along a good track. Most interesting part was at the start/end as it was June and the rhododendrons were in full bloom (I know they're a pest sometimes, but they do look fantastic.) It was also interesting that the narrow track to access the track (starting at Holy Cross) was via a tunnel of rhododendrons as in pic. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/807/comment/23175/
