New summit marker
by hansumstranga  25 Nov 2013
I hadn't read the review below but was equally delighted to discover the new path made up of stone/shale. As described it takes you all the way to the summit. I had turned off a bit earlier and went to the two points as described in the brilliant 'Ireland's County High Points' by Kieron Gribbon, before checking out the new stone marker to discover a different high point marker approx 150m to the north. Fair play to Coillte who must are obviously responsible. This was my final 'county high point' so it was nice to see that Coillte had improved this route.
