Garracummer/Mienvee Wind Farm
by sandman  11 Jun 2015
Not unusual for the Shannon Area a summit located in the middle of a wind farm but it sure makes access easy especially in this case as a marked trail runs thru it. Parking at the entrance R9026654933 starC head for wind turbine T15 and just before same enter field thru farm gate heading for point R9104955949 starD this will allow you an easy stroll to the summit without the problems associated with walking over felled forestry or thru planted trees.
