Windfarms Make Life Easy.
by sandman  7 Sep 2015
This summit now has become very easy to access due to the construction of a windfarm access is via road at W3886383768 A which has now been upgraded and no problem to drive up to the windfarm roads at W3943885201 B in actual fact i drove to within 20 meters of the summit which has now been leveled and is now home to Turbine 3 . No problem finding the summit now folks. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/676/comment/18297/
