Telecommunications tower on forested top
by Fergalh  13 Feb 2014
Take the Ballyragget road from Durrow and than take the first right after factory and proceed to the village of Lisdowney. At village take second right (uphill and proceed to crossroads. At crossroads turn right and just after forest there is a lane (S 38992 70915 A). Cross three gates and follow the track. Proceed up track until you get to gate at large field. Cross field and veer right to where the wooden electricity poles go up hill cross fence here and follow track up the the forest track turn left walk 20 metres than turn right and proceed up to Telecommunications tower. There is a track for the telecommunications tower and that may be an easier way of climbing to top but not sure where that entrance is ! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1126/comment/15852/
