A mild hike with panoramic views
by YoungJohn  30 Aug 2010
We (some long suffering family members) went through the tunnel heading for Galway having left the lovely City of Limerick behind us. Headed for Cratloe where we took the second left thus following the sign for Cratloe Woods. We then came across a split in the road. This is where we took the ‘middle’ road where a Clare County Council have a ‘No Dumping’ sign. We parked at a forestry entrance named ‘Gallows Hill’. We set off for Woodcock Hill following the directions in the first comment box on Mountain Views! Onwards and gently upwards until the ‘Ball’ came into sight. Then we turned off the road on to the service road and crossed a little bridge. The views getting better and better. When we reached the trig point we were all in awe at the wonderful panoramic views. The mighty Shannon river flowing to its wide estuary. The ‘low’ hills of Kerry and Clare marked its boundaries. While below Limerick City clear and close. Thomond Park a distinctive give away that this was the Treaty City below, Keeper, the Arra Mountains and way in the distance Benduff in the Devils Bit range, the Galty’s, Ballyhoura and Slieve Felims all to be seen. I saw no woodcocks but could imagine this 1023ft mountain was the seat of a King of old as the Gaelic name hints at. A vantage point too good not to have been, the ‘Golf Ball’ marks the spot, well worth a visit of a sunny day. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/948/comment/6066/
