Ascent Trip Report

From Dublin I set the GPS for OldCastle and it took me via the R154. Before getting to Oldcastle I saw signs for LoughCrew. I took a small road left off the R154 in the direction which lead me to a parking lot with some historical information indicating the summit is an passage tomb from 3000 BC so this made it one of the more interesting sight. The description indicates there are also tombs on the adjacent peaks but I found no path other than crossing farm land. A bright dummy day. From the sign, Slieve na Calliagh means Hill of the Witch.
