Buried treasure

Followed simon/jackill's excellent directions. It is one of the most hidden trig pillars I've ever encountered, buried deep inside a woodland whose trees are uniformly draped with moss, and admit little light, giving the place a ghostly aura. I don't know how anyone would find this pillar without specific directions! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/706/comment/23398/
