A slightly watered-down Bluestacks experience...
by Peter Walker  20 Jun 2011
Having started from the Reelan valley at (937 936 D) by walking up the Sli na Finne long distance path and nipping up Croveenananta, I returned to the col for the short climb up Lacroagh. A fence follows the right hand side of the ridgeline, possibly useful in mist but in clear conditions its course through the tough grass and bog is pretty arbitrary.

It's necessary to leave it to reach the top regardless, which is a shallow spur of grass a couple of hundred metres to the south/left unmarked by a cairn. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/812/comment/6381/
