Easy Access.
Short Summary created by sandman, jackill  7 Sep 2015
The route to the summit and finding of the summit is now very easy thanks to the construction of a Windfarm access via the road located at W3886383768 A turning right at W3943885201 B and left again . Summit adjacent to T3. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/676/comment/5435/
