Not Cross but Church on top !

Very Interesting Hill. it is more or less on its own ands has a small chapel (which is in use) on top it can be seen for many miles around. An obvious way is to walk up the track for the faithful to the summit which winds around the hill from the north west Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B5403/comment/21046/
