God bless the good old RTE transmitter access roads!
by Geo  26 Feb 2014
Climbed this about four years ago when it wasn't an MV listed summit. I had seen it from the nearby Diamond Hill. There is an RTE transmitter here and various telecommunications antennae. The cul-de-sac road from the N59 is accessed from L692568 starB. We drove south along this (very small) boreen and parked at about L709545 starC (as far as I recall). A gentle uphill ramble of about 5km return up to the summit telecoms enclosure with nice views east over the Bens. Nice that it's now included!
