No pain for Knockbane
by eamonoc  29 Oct 2023
Was in Hollyford recently, last time there 2014 or thereabouts, was up Knockbane in fading light
after a bit of a slog, no windfarm then and now turbines adorn a lot of the hills around here.
Took the opportunity to have a look again. Took a road up from Hollyford past a prominent mast to a barrier
at R93994 52202 starF. Followed a good path to junction with a bigger and newer path at R93964 52591 starG.
headed up a sharp right from here to Turbine, hopped fence behind Turbine and up to Trig point.
An easy 30 min round trip, if anyone is interested. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/678/comment/24072/
