Tilting at windmills
Short Summary created by thomas_g  14 Jan 2014
Best access is from the forest gate at S464136 A where there is plenty of room to park. Follow the track uphill towards the wind turbines. At S454139 B turn left and continue to the comms masts opposite which you'll see a small muddy track to the right. Follow this to the cross which offers wonderful views in all directions. The trig point can be reached by a bit of a slog through the gorse in the direction of the sometimes noisy wind turbines. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1215/comment/15459/
