Wind turbine-encased, forgettable hill
by Colin Murphy  1 Jun 2022
There have been some alterations to the landscape/tracks since jackal's 2010 comment. We parked at roughly R25353 12861 starC, where there was just room for a single car beside a wired off entrance to a field (it was opposite a rough farm track sloping up to the SE). We then continued NW up the main track, encountering a large tree trunk across the track (probably to stop vehicular access). We stepped over this and continued up the track to a crossroads of sorts at R25167 13148 starD, turning right up the wind farm track as far as R25447 13234 starE, where the trees on the left end. It is difficult to see, but access is possible to the NE up the side of the trees along a narrow and very rough trail of sorts, ending in an uneven, heathery area, the highest point topped by a slanting trig pillar. The entire hill is surrounded by wind turbines. About 30/40 minutes up and down. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/788/comment/23533/
