Enjoyable loop around Corrin Hill and Wood

The Hill of Corrin, a few miles south of Fermoy, is a landmark for the many motorists that pass under it every day on the Fermoy-Cork Road. The 222 metre summit provides great views over the surrounding countryside and is easily reached from the car park.
It was beautiful and sunny up around Corrin this April Sunday morning and we certainly enjoyed the looped walk which runs to 4.5 kilometres, plus the short detour to the summit which is marked with a large cross and a cairn. The degree of difficulty is marked as moderate on the noticeboard and it gives a time to complete the loop of 1.5 hours.
I think we may have under that time. But I'm not sure. I'm not that kind of walker and nobody was counting the minutes. Just walking, enjoying the sunshine and the views, stopping to take a few photos. Very enjoyable.
