Circles and Turbines

Followed Jackill's excellent directions to the top, boggy going but worth it. I see now why Jackill calls it the motorway judging by the speed the local chap with cap passed me in his 4x4.
I did find the stone circle (gate side of the fence) after a bit of bog hopping: it looks kind of odd with all the turbines on the horizon. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/830/comment/14749/
