I climbed Knockastanna up the forest track shown directly to the east of the summit at R 877 560 B. This started off promisingly enough. Then I cut across fields, back into forest and eventually hacked across rough moorland to the top. The windmills, four of them, provide a guide in direction and the whooshing sound of the turning blades is also a guide. Halfway up I realised if there are wind tubines there must be a roadway. This seems to be on the western side of the hill. The views off Knockastanna are quite impressive. The summit is just into Co Limerick. There are 4 wind mills on the northern flank of the hill, but for some reason the upper one was not placed on the actual summit. Nearly 2 hours later wet and bedraggled I got back to my car.
