Taurbeg windfarm caused much debate during and after its construction. Residents claimed sleepless nights from the noise of the turbines and disruption to telephone and television signals.Access to the summit is made easy by the access road at R22980 12235 where you could park a small aircraft carrier, although if you don't want to walk past the windfarm office then you will notice a slightly overgrown forest road just across the river which will bring you out onto the windfarm road very near the summit. The summit is a raised area of bog very near the most southerly windmill. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/804/comment/4416/
