Bulbin/Wiskin Horseshoe road access info
Benbulbin via Gleniff Horseshoe Road (Benwiskin side) – (OSI map 16 – mapgrid 49/72,73)
I also have a bit more info on something else that pop’t up in the comments on Benbulbin here, a few day’s before we climbed Benbulbin we walked the Gleniff Horseshoe road and possibility’s to go this way allover Benwiskin are at least difficult to say the least…, not by terrain but by all the posters and warning signs reading private property, no hillwalking allowed. Passed the ruin of the old schoolhouse, you pas by a house that is full of them, I think this is the spot where the trouble started. Two of the signs there offered a bit more background, but I still don’t know what actually happened here somewhere in 1992. “I’ll Quote these two signs here, the first one reads : Nice bank robbers run free, Angry rough looking Farmer with camera gets Jail… That’s justice for Ya. And the other one : The Bull Mc Sharry would like to thank all the people for their support and cooperation over the last ten years. I hope the new minister of tourism has a brighter outlook than the last gobshite – No Talks No Walks 1992-2002… As we are 2005 now, and the signs are still up, I guess nothing did change much with the new Minister… In the picture included are two phone numbers to ring… as we did not try them I can’t tell if they are for more info about the incident itself or maybe a possibility to arrange access if you want to start out from this side. They read : Paul on : 071-9161201 and John on 01-6313817
Hope this is helpfull now...
