Not quite the ogre I expected
by ceadeile  25 Apr 2019
Tackled Bruse in early April 2019 before bracken etc. had chance to be too much of a nuisance.
Started at carpark at N31338 98810 A and walked down through the cemetery to the gate giving access to the lane into the quarry.
The gate has a warning notice regarding danger and unauthorised entry.
High fencing has been installed beyond the gate but it is still possible to access the lane by climbing over the wall at the side of the gate.
The lane/track can be followed as far as the quarry.
The lane/track is being colonised by birch saplings but is passable as water flows down the vehicle tyre tracks making it difficult for the saplings to establish themselves there.
There is a turn off to the left just before the quarry at another warning sign regarding danger and unauthorised entry.
The fence into the field beside the quarry can be crossed near a rusty barrel.
The field allows clear walking up along the hedge to where hazel scrub covers the hill.
This hazel scrub provides an ideal environment for overwintering cattle as they are sheltered while still availing of the health benefits of remaining outside in the fresh air.
The cattle have created paths which facilitate ascent through the scrub to an overgrown stone wall which is easily crossed.
Nearly there now.The hazel is superseded by some low sally (willow) but this is not too troublesome.
The worst of the heather seems to have been burned off a few years ago and although the un-burnt heather skeletons and long, tough grass will impede progress the trig pillar can now be reached without too much difficulty. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/994/comment/20499/
