I took on Coppenagh as it is on my list of local 100's. It was the 23 jan, heavy fog abounding. I approached from Inistioge, turned left at the road junction at S66946 41825 A, there is a sign post for coppenaghon the right. At the next left junction I parked my cark by backing it up slightly into a field entrance. Parking for two cars here without impediment. I followed the road up into the forest and when I came to a gate with galvanise sheets I went out of the forest and onto the mountain. At approximately 300 metres I walked out of the fog into glorious sunshine and a view for which to die. Brandon hill, the Blackstairs and Slievenamon were poking their tops out of the cloud, some still have drifts of snow. could not find the trig point as it is wholly surrounded by dense forest, did not want to delay too long as I wished to Walk brandon hil on the same day Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/882/comment/4371/
