Farming for wind

I visited today and had a chat with a nice diggerman from Tipp, the foundations are there for a turbine, which means you cross a nice forest road on the way up, which I suspect is probably the best way to ascend, don't be tempted to walk to the end of the road where the turbine is going and cut through the young trees, it's fairly impassable after 200m.
The forest ride mentioned is fairly impassible now, but I had good success going through the mature trees, there is even an animal path in places. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/788/comment/15061/
