Bulls are the hazard here !
by Fergalh  1 Mar 2014
Take the (R394) Castlepollard road north of Mullingar ,after passing through Crookedwood you will come to junction for Collinstown shortly after this (the next left) you will come upon a garage on the right. Turn left until crossroads, than turn left again and park at new house being built (N4669264396 A). Proceed up track till you get to the top of the road there is a series of gates here. The gate you have to go through has beware bull sign ! Now the tricky bit the field has 5 or 6 black and white bulls, skirt around them to get to the trig pillar !

Always ask landowner permission to cross land, never ever damage fences and beware of livestock. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1273/comment/15808/
