Track up from the quarry is overgrown. I partially walked up a small stream, as it at least cuts its way through the whins. Climbing straight upwards, you will see places where some earlier climber has snipped some of the worst twigs out of the way. If possible, bring binoculars, a compass and the Ordnance Survey Discovery maps 27 and 34, to identify the scene. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/994/comment/18861/

Not Bruised!

Thursday 31/10/2013. Using previous comments parked car at N31338 98810 A plenty of room for many cars. Went through cemetary found gate and accessed quarry as suggested by csd, found path on the left, and the fun started at about the 175mt mark the path was badly overgrown in places, but I was able to follow it keeping a slag heap on my left, there was plenty of gorse to contend with, this so called track trended rightwards above the quarry I was able make my way through the gorse to the remains of a well hidden old wall, got over this and delved into chest high ferns. Always heading uphill I cleared the ferns and now had to negotiate my way more easily through waist high heather and eventually reached the trig point and a Cavan flag fluttering in the breeze. It took about 30mins from the car to the top. If any Mountainviewers intend to climb this hill, may I suggest you do it sooner rather than later because if the gorse gets hold this top could prove to be very elusive. I met an elderly local gentleman in the graveyard on the way down, he informed me that he had climbed the hill many times in his youth, I enquired about the quarry he told me that it had opened in 1949 and closed about 15yrs ago, he said that there were quite a few ex workers who had spent their lives in the quarry buried in the graveyard where we were standing.

Alan Lee on Bruse Hill, 2008

Climbed Bruse Hill about 3 years ago trying to locate some cairns. Followed more or less the same route as 'Alaskan' up the lane by the quarry until the lane runs out to thick vegeataion. Hadn't much luck finding the cairns as the whole summit was completely covered in thick Gorse, Heather and Brambles but never-the-less was rewarded with nice views of the surrounding lakes and countryside.

We parked beside the church and tried to find the path on the left of the quarry, but very thing is very overgrown.Back to the main road and we took the small road on the left of the church, walk 300m pass the only house on your left and about 50m on the right side of the road you will find a gate.We climbed following a diagonal route to the top, from the gate going south-west.The bottom of the hill can be muddy, but as soon as you start going up a hazel wood will make things easy.The top had a bad fire last may 2016 i think, and this made the last bit of the climb easy as no gorse is left, but things are starting to grow back fast.Splendid 360º views from a nice little hill.
