No access from point A.
by donalhunt  5 Mar 2017
Attempted to follow the same route as sandman. Parked at W5672272804 starA and proceeded up the access road to W5687272729 starB where we discovered a gate and sign indicating PRIVATE PROPERTY. Respected the landowner's wishes and returned to our car.

Will attempt to enquire whether permission can be obtained on another occasion. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1334/comment/18855/
