Views from the Slieve Bloom Mountains

Although they pass through only two counties, a viewpoint at the top of the Slieve Bloom affords glimpses of seven.

From this lofty perch one can see Roscommon, Longford, Westmeath, Offaly, Laois, Tipperary, and Galway.

Also visible during our May travels were yellow gorse, bluebell woods, and flowering white thorn. Fluffy heads of bog cotton could be seen in a few places beside the road.

The other great view from the top of the Slieve Blooms was the sky, full of ever-changing arrays of cloud.
