A summit with a visitors book
Short Summary created by jackill, sandman  26 Jan 2017
Park at the forestry entrance at R 70274 16868 A, room for 5 cars Walk along forestry roads turning right at a Y junction and then keep left at a T junction following a track to meet up with the Darragh Hills Loop Walk now turning right up hill to the summit. The summit is a distinctive, large, rocky, conglomorate outcrop which sits on old Red Sandstone. Carrigeenamronety is also of note because of the large population on the rare Killarney Fern that grows on its slopes. It is a protected species listed in the EU habitats directive and the Flora protection order of 1999 Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/825/comment/5584/
