Gate & Fencing on Forest road
by Rossie73  3 May 2021
Hi, this related to the Forest track, #861, enroute to Glennagalligh, and then onto Moylussa.

Refer to entrance just South Point C.
GPS N53.80328 W 8.53531
It is on the old road from Kilbane to Killaloe, East Clare

I had walked there 2 years ago, but arrived Sat 1st May 21 to see the forest track way fenced and newly added gate put on, as shown in photos.
This is a forest road, and no livestock would be in the vicinity. I do agree that dumping had taken place some time back. I have seen a washing machine dumped in the forest, estimating from 8 years ago.
There were no “Do not trespass” signs. But having looked at the earlier posts from authors
Buny Clare Wed 28 Apr murphysw 19 Dec 2005 , I was not comfortable in climbing the padlocked gate.
There are smaller older Broadford Gun club signs up also.
I like the views from the top, above the forest line. You can see the Shannon Estuary on the West, Lough Derg and North Tipperary on the East, Parteen Weir and Limerick city to the South. I think the area is very scenic, and a block to public pedestrian access is disappointing.
Thank you, ( Rossie73) Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/390/comment/23041/
