GI/SW-006 Dooish 341m

We thought we would add this one in at the end of our trip to the South West mountains along with Mullaghcroy 009. However as we couldn’t get access to the shorter walk to Dooish we ended up with just one summit today. When we were refused access on the west side of the summit we drove round to the east to the wee pub on the Drumquin road. We were given permission to park and he kindly directed us to the start of the “track”. After and hour we reached the folly and then on to the summit. Ian was soon in contact with Victor GI4ONL on 2m and I had a QSO with him also in case HF wasn’t good. I needn’t have worried – very quickly had it activated on 40m, then S2S on 60m and 20m. Views were nonexistent today as we were SN led with a fine mist. Mountain dog was getting cold at this stage so we packed up and headed down again. No wildlife spotted today. Just the usual mushrooms and fox pooh!!
