After a dreich night, a dreich day followed, we carefully negotiated several flooded roads and byways to arrive at Simon3's start point for Dooish Mountain. Followed the track up past the communications transmitter, round a flooded area & up to the trig point, which in true mapping style was not marked on my map. The view, well there was none bar the rolling banks of mist and rain. My thoughts immediately turned to probable the last supplies in Ulster, of Atlas Breweries finest 3 Sisters & Nimbus ales, sitting lonely and dejected in my fridge. Time for home and don't spare the horses! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/987/comment/4236/
