Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  7 Jul 2011
Park off road C2354708411 A taking care not to block access. Walk down the road SE to C2365804722 B and then go left on to a good track. Route 1. Continue along past a locked iron barrier gate to C2384805083 C. Go right (E) into the undergrowth of gorse and small pine trees. At first it looks a bit forbidding but progress is easier than at first impression. The open hillside is reached at C2404905010 D with clear access to the small prominent, tree crowned top. Return by outward route. Route 2. At C2377304843 E along the track look for an old metal gate on the right, climb over and go left (NE) along the fence line to C2390305009 F. Turn right and follow the fence line going up, more or less E, along the forest edge. Apart from a scramble through some prickly whin bushes and over a couple of fences this fence line can be followed up to C2430104987 G, by which time it has become a clear track bounded by two fences running E to W across the hillside, in line with the track shown on the OSI Sheet 6 for Mongorry Hill. The top of the hill, a small tree topped mound, lies 70 metres N at C2429105065 H. One advantage of Route2 is that it is, in the main, along open ground, whereas Route 1 requires route finding through undergrowth that will become more difficult as the trees get higher. Public notices have also been placed along Route 1, near the locked metal barrier gate suggesting that the land is reserved for "Raphoe Gun Club Members Only" ! Using both routes as a loop of some 2.3k. Linkback:
