Tilting at windmills
Short Summary created by jackill  6 Aug 2010
You can park at the wide entrance to the windfarm at W10616 73267 A.
Climb over the double gates and walk uphill on a good track until you come to a second set of gates.
Go through these passing turf cuttings and look for the sign for windmill three.
Go up the track to windmill three W11317 73889 B and climb the bank to your left.
Pick up a boggy track leading roughly north east which will bring you close to a wire fence heading
north.
Cross the fence and skirt the forest edge to the unmarked summit.
Note this area was very wet in July. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/646/comment/5405/
