Thou shalt not pass

There is a rather new and large sign on the gate of the track that runs from the rent a cottage scheme that proclaims "Private Property, Trespassers will be Prosecuted".
I'm afraid Fergalh's route is no more. I didn't have time to try an alternate route this time. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1211/comment/18005/
