Loved by locals and travellers alike
From the The Dublin Review, Volume 49, 1861, over 160 years ago:
“The writer of these pages had the good fortune some years ago to encounter a party of young Irishmen in the grey mist of an October morning, on the summit of Monte Gennaro. […] All of them had the genuine enthusiasm of mountain travellers, and were probably as proud of their night-excursion as any one who has ascended Mont Blanc.”
