The clump of beech trees on ‘Flagpole Hill’ in Dartrey Forest
Dartrey Forest, formerly the estate of the Dawson family H6117 : Inner Lough island and the history of the Dartrey estate, is now managed by Coillte for forestry. Their woodmen have continued to spare this lone clump while felling all the surrounding trees as shown here in 1989. The hill has been referred to as McMahon’s castle, which long pre-dates the Dartrey name (the McMahon story:

Dartrey Forest also boasts of some fine old oak trees which, thanks to Coillte and the Dartrey Heritage Society, are being preserved LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
