Croagh Patrick via Bengoram - a unique approach - Saturday 20th July 2019

Yesterday we climbed Mayo's famous mountain via it's western spur and secondary peak of Bengoram. Throughout the ascent we met one solitary hiker on his descent from the summit. On the summit there was the usual hoards of people milling around who had made the ascent via the highly eroded and dangerous slopes on the pilgrim path. We were blessed with superb weather and it just could not have been better. Thanks again for all who joined us and were rewarded with a most enjoyable hike in great company.
