Strong Wind !!!!!
by sandman  7 Sep 2015
Must have been either a strong wind or some one was looking for a pot of gold under the trig on this Cork farm.A farm road located at W3944173617 starA will allow you access via the internal farm tracts to the summit area and this poor trig located close by.
