Attack of the Bees
by TommyV  3 Aug 2021
Followed jimbloomers directions which are spot on. No fence so access to the open hill is easy although strangely enough there is a fence all the way around the summit. Fantastic views of the Bens, Turks, Mwleerea, Loughs Glendollagh, Inagh and Derryclare. When I reached the summit I was set upon by a swarm of bees that were darting in around my head to warn me I had encroached on their turf. A few quick snaps and I was on my way. Maybe that's what the fence at the top is for!! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/828/comment/23222/
