Wind farm ready ...

I had Tooreen still to bag to complete the cluster of hills in Co. Tipperary.

Felling has now been completed and a contractor is ‘landscaping’ the former forest area. The stony tracks look too good for just forestry so they are probably destined for wind farm access. No doubt the anemometer near the top will have measured all there is to measure and Tooreen will undergo the same as neighbouring Knockastanna i.e. plunk a couple of turbines on its slope, padlock the gate it and plaster ‘No Trespassing’ signs all over.

I started from the forestry entrance at Barna (pointed out by jackill) then pushed up in a SW direction partly over an adjacent field partly over an old access road on the edge of the former forest, passing through an area called Cummer Beg on some maps, proceeded as best as possible to the top avoiding debris from the felling activities.

It took about 1 hour to reach the top of this otherwise unexciting hill.

At Barna there is a sign about a temporary diversion of the Multeen Way which presumably ran over Tooreen (I did not investigate further). Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/597/comment/6757/
