Coming down from the Devilsmother by its westerly spur, this was a view of Lissoughter (black and central), looking like it is a peak viewed over a heaving ocean.

The first and second intervening spurs are off Tonalee, to the right of the picture. The higher slope on the right is Knocknahillion making up part of the famous Maamochoige pass. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/828/comment/14709/
