Slieve Callan

On a nice morning I set off to walk up Slieve Callan , the countys 3rd highest peak.
The views from here are very special as you can see south across the Shannon estuary and down though the border of Limerick and Kerry.
I got to see a Peregrine Falcon, Hen Harrier and a few Grouse otherwise it was very quiet with just pools of frog spawn.
A nice walk up through a quiet Pine forest became difficult as I took the wrong path back down and had to just walk it out.Certainly not a place for inexperienced.
