Croagh Patrick Cave and West Summit Trek from Westport Area
"In the early 19th century a man who came to be known as ‘Bob of the Reek’ made his home near the summit of the mountain. He spent the next fourteen years assisting pilgrims in their quest to reach the peak. Winter months were spent in the company of friends at the foot of Croagh if one is to believe that the structure known as ‘Bob of the Reek’s Cave’ was his home. This ‘cave’ which is actually more reminiscent of a medieval holy well faces due north and is very high on the mountain. There is also some controversy as to the true identity of Bob of the Reek. Locals in Lecanvey Village on the northwest side claim him as Robert Geraghty
