Awkward access
Short Summary created by sandman, jackill  7 Sep 2015
A tricky ascent as this hill is surrounded on 3 sides by farmland and on 1 side by windfarm construction. I ascended through farm land (less than ideal but didn't meet anyone) from W36490 78617 A where there is room to park 2 cars on the roadside.
Note: although I went up this way , it may not be possible at some future point as there appeared to be a house being constructed at the access point to the fields. No restriction on access from point W3813178642 B as oh Sept 2015. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/867/comment/5626/
