Picture: Sad sight in Co Kilkenny
Drive in Dump
by eamonoc  30 Oct 2014
What can be said about the sight that greeted my teenage daughter and I today in Co Kilkenny. Keen to introduce her to the delights of Mt Views and Hill walking, decided to try a few small hills in Kilkenny and Wexford. Wexford won out today, as I was saddened to see what was dumped on this hill. I am glad that we decided to drive up to the summit area/ Dump, had we walked I would have felt mad outraged and cheated by whoever decided to turn this Aesthetically challenged hill into a dump.

No longer a drive in dump
by ciaranr  6 Sep 2020
There is now a Collite barrier at the start of the track at the road at S6022530270 A and the place is pretty much litter free. There is parking for one car (two at a squeeze) at the barrier and it's a short walk up a gravel track to the summit, which isn't exactly obvious. When I visited there was a heap of gravel for road building which looked like the highest point, but I think the true high point is on exposed rock just under the tree cover.
