Waterford.   Gibbet Hill is the second highest hill in the North Wexford area and the 1122th highest in Ireland. Gibbet Hill is the most westerly summit and also the second most northerly in the North Wexford area.

Thursday 2/01/2014. Climbed today as start point to Nth Wexford New Years treat, easily followed directions from all previous Mt views comments started at S 939591 A. No problem parking here for one or two cars. But would not recommend Trailtrekkers drive to Coillte gates unless one possess`s a 4 wheel drive of some sorts. Arrived at summit no problem and saw a technician atop a ladder fixing sattelite dish or was he? . Was he a Mt Viewer trying to elevate himself to greater heights than me, a poor mortal walker no Van or Ladder to take me to the dizzy heights he was trying to achieve! Wake up eamonoc. Looked towards Slieveboy and what the heck here we go! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/938/comment/15297/
