Landowner sign " No Hillwalkers allowed "
by Rossie73  12 Jul 2020
Hi, I tried to do this hill, Sun 12th July 2020. At the gate 500m from Leenaun, on road toward Maam, there was a distinct sign saying " No Hillwalkers allowed". A neighbour in a car pulled up and vocally said the landowner had spent €11K on fencing. The sign was put up about 2 months ago. It was too wet a day for me to photo the sign.
The only way up was 500m on from the hotel taking the Western Way track. Thank you, John Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/246/comment/20813/
