Nice Views Visible Again
by TommyMc  13 Mar 2018
I visited Corn Hill on a sunny morning in March 2018 and was pleased to see that some of the forestry that had blighted the area near summit has been felled in recent years and as a result there are fantastic views to be seen over the north Longford area into Co. Leitrim.

A local walker I met nearby told me that the felled area has already been replanted with young trees. As these will grow in the coming years, they will obscure the views, so now is a good time to visit. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/974/comment/19866/
