Where's the Dolmen?
by TommyV  25 Oct 2018
A road leads north west out of the lovely village of Mountshannon. The road does deteriorate quite badly so after about 5 kilometers I found a place to park at R67044 90615 E. From here follow the track north east for about 500 meters before having to head on a bog slog north for about 1.5 kilometers to the lonely trig point on this boggy plateau. There are nice views out over Lough Derg.

I had passed a sign for a Dolmen on my drive to the start point which was in the general vicinity so I took a detour south to try and find it. I didn't have any luck so I made my way back out to the road. The futile search for the dolmen added about 2 kilometers to the walk but hey, it was a nice day out!
