Burnt Mountain
by Fergalh  8 Jun 2021
Sadly this hill has not escaped the spate of gorse fires that hit Killarney and other places in May. The entire southside of the mountain has been burnt away. The grass is growing quickly on the lower slopes hiding the damage somewhat. However many burnt gorse and trees are in evidence on the upper slopes as a result it is now easier to reach the summit as described by Cobh Climber Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/959/comment/23170/
