Tress blown over at summit
by Fergalh  1 Mar 2014
Turn right at first crossroads out of Portlaoise. Park at gate (S 51858 96493) and cross field to rough stile over fence, follow track to right and proceed up hill. At the moment there are many trees blown over at the top.

Always ask landowner permission to cross land, never ever damage fences and beware of livestock. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1201/comment/15849/
