Low hill to the west of Letterkenny. .. by simon3   (Show all for Gregory Hill)
 
Tickless on Gregory Hill
by three5four0  18 Apr 2010
We followed the track, mentioned by simon3, which had several sections where you had to leave it unless you wished to be up to your knees in foul smelling mud and animal secretions! After a short distance the track preformed a switchback and improved in quality, well slightly, and brought you within sight of the fence running over the summit area. We followed this a short distance uphill, crossed it and walked over to the highest point, only noticing the ground level trig marker when we got there. We also made it home tick-less!

One good way of checking yourself for ticks, is to have a shower instead of that nice relaxing bath after your day out in the hills. When washing yourself or indeed your partner with shower gel, a tick will feel like a bit of hard skin or a small bramble thorn which will move back and forward as you move your hand over it, feel something like this you need to investigate further! Also, you can now purchase tick removal tweezers, which are a far superior way of removing them. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/916/comment/4631/
