False summit marked by cairn
by Fergalh  28 Feb 2021
A short distance away from the summit there is this large elaborate cairn. However this is not the real summit as per the OS Maps Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/b3869/comment/22469/

Short trek to summit
by Fergalh  28 Feb 2021
A short trek southwards from Black Coombe leads to the south top which is unmarked and a very scree rocky summit. From here drop down to track and a long trek back to the church Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B3869/comment/22468/
