The wind of change...
by Peter Walker  13 Mar 2011
I followed Mr Goodman's directions for an ascent from the south, having first checked out the possibility of coming in from the NW from the highpoint/road junction at (449 088 G). This was comprehensively rejected; there are big changes afoot on this top. A huge windfarm is in the process of construction on the ridge to the E of Slievekirk, and the livid access road/track for those works (currently very busy with heavy plant vehicles and hard-hatted gentlemen) runs from that junction up onto the hill and along the crest. It passes within yards of the summit, but somehow doesn't seem very welcoming even if there was no objection to its use (I didn't ask).

My picture shows the extent of the workings; it's the view eastward from the 'ground to the NEE (of the trig point that) looks like it might be little higher!'. I'm unconvinced; I don't have any odd old Jackill-esque gadgets (and the webmaster laughed the last time I spoke of lying down and looking at lines of sight) but I think the trig point is marginally nearer the heavens. But for anyone who feels the need to visit both to be on the safe side...look both ways when crossing the road. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/877/comment/6270/
