Small but Perfectly Formed. Excellent Views for the Effort.
by ciarraioch  Fri 7 Aug
Might be a nice one for the family on a dry day or an easy introduction to the hills for casual walkers. Climbed on a cloudy and drizzly February afternoon from the road on the saddle between Cnoc a' Ti and Cnoc an Uaignis. Had a lash at the latter as well (see separate entry) , although that was a much longer affair. Between the combings of cloud, excellent views onto Lauragh & Kilmackilogue and the Cummeengeera Horseshoe as well as across the bay down towards Caherdaniel. The poignant monument at the summit to Richard Mersey is a fitting tribute on the very first hill he climbed back in the '40s. Richard in his book 'The Hills of Cork and Kerry', captured as no other the sentiments of those of us who love this glorious corner of the world. Go ndeanfaidh Dia trocaire ar a anam uasal.
