An Mhucais / Muckish Mountain
An Mhucais / Muckish is a distinctive flat-topped mountain. At 666 metres (2,185 ft), it is the third-highest peak in the Derryveagh Mountains. One of the paths up the mountain starts from near the Bridge of Tears (or Bridge of Sorrows). This was where, in the 19th and early 20th century, local families would walk with their loved ones who were leaving home to escape famine and poverty and to seek a better in life in America or Canada.
