This photo shows one of the security cameras at the top of Saggart Hill. Perhaps the only summit in Ireland that can prevent fraudulent "peak-bagging" claims? !! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/848/comment/3286/

This is the tree that stands over the ringfort on Saggart Hill. The tree is dead. The ringfort is barely noticable. A forest of masts stand behind the camera. I dedicate this tree to all that is wrong in the hills of Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/848/comment/3285/

Howling Masts
by eamonoc  21 Feb 2011
Sunday 20/2/2011. Started at O 0135 225, not much evidence of dumping at present. Followed path to Summit/ Mast area took about 8mins to walk, not much to see. It was very windy and the eerie noise of the wind howling around all the masts made for some interesting acoustics. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/848/comment/6247/
