Barred Access
by Jamessheerin  22 Sep 2016
Whether the aforementioned road ("upgraded under Clar program") is a right of way or not I cannot say but be advised... it is no longer usable. A five foot high gate with lock and chain now bars all passage. I have uploaded a screenshot of my route up and down. Parked at M26489 06523 A. Continued up track and headed directly for the col on rough ground. I would not advise anyone to take the same route! It only looks like a short distance, but "rough ground" is a mild description! On the way down we stuck to the track (which goes all the way to summit and beyond) but to avoid the high gate went into the fields (through a gate at M26234 06694 B) on the right close to the house. Please see photo. Another two fields (and gates) will bring you through to start point. This area is intensively farmed and there is livestock present and I entered it reluctantly. Watch out for the electrified fences. It may not be suitable to use at all times? The track to the summit seems to run all the way through to the far side of the hill and may be a better way in if the houseowner there insists on barring access? I will investigate the access from the west at a later date... Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1134/comment/18638/
