A lowdown elusive Trig!
by eamonoc  4 Mar 2019
Visited Ben Dash on Sunday 24th Feb, parked as mentioned in previous comments, made way up track. . On the lower slopes of the hill there is a lot of construction work being undertaken, power lines I think. I counted 5 diggers there is a large area of forest cleared to makeway for the power lines. I found the elusiive trig without too mugh difficulty, anyone intending to visit Ben Dash might be best served to leave it till a Sunday. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1196/comment/20446/
