DEEP QUARRY KEEP OUT
by muschi  18 Jan 2014
Parked at H 730 002 A between the DEEP QUARRY KEEP OUT sign and walked 200 mtrs to the summit. Taghert is a working quarry and the quarry works extend almost to the summit. On the way back I noticed a roadway at H 733013 B, this might provide a more discreet passageway to the summit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1156/comment/15790/

Bag it while you can.
by paddyhillsbagger  16 Mar 2014
This top can only be bagged by ignoring the warning signs associated with a working quarry. There was also a planning notice on a post for a proposed wind farm to add to the mix. The only pleasant view I had was of a soaring buzzard above the site. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1156/comment/15925/

Borrowed Time

As Muschi stated in his comments this is a working quarry and at present the summit is approx one rock blast away from becomming one of the lowest summits in the north midlands. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1156/comment/15883/
