Story by Patrick Dease from Laois, Ireland, submitted on 30/05/2015
A sharp beginning to this short climb but if the legs are already weary it will not seem short at all. You can also climb it from the opposite side and combine it with an ascent of Slieve Maan by going straight through the crossroads at the bottom of the descent. The scenery is outstanding and food and drink is available at the crossroads in the local Pub. The Glenmalure valley was one of the last refuges of the 1798 rebels who hid out in caves on the hillsides as British troops scoured the area for them. There is an old Royal Irish Constabulary building near the crossroads.....An enchanting valley no matter what the weather although it does not seem quite as remote as it used to be. Modern houses dot the valley where once was wildeness...............
