Walking towards the summit your eye is drawn to the rough , wind sculpted trees springing up almost by magic from fissures in the limestone. This area is I understand being considered for SAC status by the EU. The National Parks and wildlife service notes
"The hills are of limestone overlain by shales and/or sandstones so the surface geology is variable, with each rock type maintaining a very different type of vegetation. This particular site is mostly limestone, exposed as small ledges or as flat sheets when it is weathered into the
pavement pattern so well known from the Burren" and don't pick the flowers! " The Rare and legally protected (Flora Protection Order, 1987), Green-winged Orchid
(Orchis morio) grows sparingly through this community. Two other orchid species,
Frog Orchid (Coeloglossum viride) and Common Spotted-orchid (Dactylorhiza cf.
fuchsii) are also recorded from the site" Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/902/comment/4359/
