Used the Struicin track two weeks ago for first time in a couple of years. Surprised to find very substantial fence blocking route from end of track to top of Cnoc an Bhraca. Did not cross the fence as there id no stile but followed it due west for about 1 km where it turns due south and can be followed right to summit of Cnoc an Bhraca. I mention this as I encountered five walkers coming up Cnoc an Bhraca who had apparently climbed over the fence on leaving Struicin track only to have to climb over it again to gain the summit of Cnoc an Bhraca.
If you're into fences this one is magnificent! Very substantial, strong and beautifully erected.. It would be a shame if walkers were to damage it by climbing over when not necessary to gain Cnoc an Bhraca. On the way down I enquired from a local the origin of the fence and it was explained, somewhat vaguely, that the area had to be fenced off as commonage under EU regulations but having been erected it was now unclear if it had been required! Anyway walkers please don't damage it by climbing over! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/656/comment/17716/
