Access via the trees
by thomas_g  9 Aug 2013
The main gate now has a big no access sign, so access via the forest path mentioned above. This path is very overgrown, but passible (just), it brings you out by turbine 9, then an easy walk from there to the summit mostly by tracks.
Don't try to walk from here to Taur as the way is almost impassible due to rough ground / trees: I did and gave up. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/804/comment/15060/
