Drung Hill Ridge

Several detailed recces resulted in this very decent ridge walk.  The route started at Mountain Stage, then climbed a track leading to the fields at the foot of Drung Hill.  The ensuing steady ascent, a relentless, gradual 500m, brought the four of us to the summit (640m).  Some discussion was entertained regarding the meaning of “Drung”, but no-one actually knew.  From Drung Hill the route continued to Beenmore (650m), then down to its southern col from where a zig-zag bog road led down to a forest break, and thence to the Kerry Way and back to the cars.

Nine members thoroughly enjoyed their day, if the post-walk chat was anything to go by.   Lest anyone think that this is an easy-peasy walk, be reminded that there is a sharp ascent of almost 300m from the start at Glenbeigh to the Windy Gap (Bearna Gaoithe – from where the views to NW and SE were spectacular), and that most of the remaining 8kms are now off-road.
