by eamonoc  1 Nov 2013
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.
