Summit 5/5 of the walk. 16kms in 4hrs 10mins. Started up Carrigleitrim 408m in the forest, which now i would not recommend as its a messy start to the walk. Continued on to Sorrel Hill 599m, Black Hill 602m, Moanbane 703m and Silsean 698m.Finished on the road in the village of Ballyknockan. The hitch back to the car was ok, only took 1 hour!simoburn22/01/2014
