DEEP QUARRY KEEP OUT
by muschi  18 Jan 2014
Parked at H 730 002 A between the DEEP QUARRY KEEP OUT sign and walked 200 mtrs to the summit. Taghert is a working quarry and the quarry works extend almost to the summit. On the way back I noticed a roadway at H 733013 B, this might provide a more discreet passageway to the summit. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1156/comment/15790/

Bag it while you can.
by paddyhillsbagger  16 Mar 2014
This top can only be bagged by ignoring the warning signs associated with a working quarry. There was also a planning notice on a post for a proposed wind farm to add to the mix. The only pleasant view I had was of a soaring buzzard above the site. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1156/comment/15925/

Only one way up
by TommyMc  19 Sep 2019
The only practical way to access this hill is from near the locked quarry gates on the road in front of it. I attempted it across the fields and scrub to the north via the adjacent masts, and the combination of furze, long grass, brambles and the odd wet ditch made for an unpleasant walk that I couldn't recommend to anyone.

On the bright side, quarrying seems to have permanently ceased on the hill itself, although the quarry approx a half-mile to the south is as busy as ever, and there are extensive views in all directions. What I saw of the quarry did not suggest any particularly dangerous hazards. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1156/comment/20653/

Borrowed Time
by sandman  25 Feb 2014
As Muschi stated in his comments this is a working quarry and at present the summit is approx one rock blast away from becomming one of the lowest summits in the north midlands. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1156/comment/15883/
