You could actually fly and climb this one !
by Fergalh  16 Feb 2014
Take the turn off for the airport than park one km along at a layby (M47093 96666 A). You than walk up road opposite to top and turn right at the top walk 200 metres to Telecommunications mast the high point lies a few metres west in a small outcrop (although it is arguable if the soil dumped at the east side is higher). In fact this is the only hill you can fly to and walk to if you should be so inclined as it is only one km from the airport ! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1275/comment/15859/

Not Pretty!!
by paddyhillsbagger  14 Apr 2014
A rather disappointing hill scarred with quarry works, masts, perimeter fence and an airport! 10 minutes up and down. There is a conifer tree by the rocky outcrop of the top in the picture taken from the earthworks which appear higher. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1275/comment/16003/
