Beware the bull
by aidand  22 Oct 2011
Knockmaroe is part of a large dairy farm. I called to the farmhouse at R 937 602 B and got permission to climb the hill. Just a 15 minute walk up a farm road. I was warned about the bull but had no problems. I would not recommend climbing without asking permission. This must be one of the highest dairy farms in Ireland and therefore is someones workplace.
