Big field to cross first
by Fergalh  2 Jan 2021
Drive north of Mullingar on the Castlepollard road (R394) until you get to Taughmon Church. There is a sign for Owens concrete just beside the church. Drive along this road till you get to Owens concrete (N4290561893 starA). Opposite the quarry there is a very large field at the top of this veer to right and you will reach the summit....
