"Sign about remote controlled barrier." from simon3 Contract pics
Picture: Sign about remote controlled barrier. (Contract pics)

Controlled access on a Coillte forest.
At the forest entrance to the SW of Ballyvouskill (Paps/Derrynasaggart area), we came across an open barrier at around 14:00. When returning at around 15:15 the barrier was shut.

We gathered that the barrier can be opened and lowered by radio control judging by the antenna and lifting mechanism to one side.

While not affecting walkers much unless you have a foolish urge to drive into lockable forests, this seems a new level of gadgetry. Or has anyone else seen such?

Slieve Beg: Southern plunge
simon3 less than an hour ago.
The famous side of Slieve Beg is the NE, gashed by the Devils Coachroad. However the SE side also has its drama.Taken on a frosty slippy day from Cove.

My final Vandeleur-Lynam! Unfortunately No. 273 wasn't the most distinctive summit (when I came off Mangerton I couldn't even pick it out on the landscape) , but the views from the top are tremend...

  
Summit Summary
Dromderalough NE Top: Long route from the south.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: Colin Murphy 2 days ago.
Not normally done in isolation, this top usually forms part of a walk involving Dromderalough itself or Mangerton. One approach is from the north, which has the advantage of a gently rising track ...

Colin Murphy 2 days ago.
On my approach to the summit I came across a large field of hundreds of these rather striking formations, which I think are are moss-covered boulders, but which looked like giant green ant-hills o...

Mangerton: The Lake District

Scapania's directions to the start are perfect. It's possible to make a looped walked taking in Stoompa and Mangerton which will allow for great views of so many lakes I won't list them. It's a fa...

Naweeloge Top: Meh
magnumpig 6 days ago.
I followed Sandmans instructions - thanks for those - it's a bit of a time consuming and boring climb, and the views from the top arent great. I wouldnt prioritise it if you have time constraints ...
