New gate
by AdrianneB  6 Oct 2014
There is a new metal gate replacing the pallet mentioned in the other comments. It's not locked though just tied with string. Also, after crossing the fence at the top of the field and turning right onto the track there is a panel of metal mesh acting as a gate also tied with string. Great views out to Knocknarea, Tievebaun etc Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/761/comment/17708/
