A quick dash in Cork
by eamonoc  24 Mar 2016
Was in the area for a few days, so decided to try a few Sth Cork listed hills. Was able to drive on a very narrow road to W 29284 40935 A. Parked at a cattle pen crossed the road and cautiously over a gate onto farmland, easily crossed three fields and a plethora of low electric fences and arrived at top where there are a few small private masts. Weather wasn`t great cannnot comment on views. From the road to the top was approx 800mts. My ascent was done speedily at 7am and there was nobody about, be advised all this land is a working farm with cattle grazing and slurry recently sprayed on one of the fields I crossed.
