Giant golf ball
by TommyV  25 Oct 2018
There is a road heading north out of the village of Cratloe out past the enterence to Cratloe Woods. After about 5 kilometers along this road at R51945 63870 starB there is room to park. You will see an odd looking structure built by the Irish Aviation Authority less than 500 meters away from the road. When I was younger, driving to Limerick with my parents, this always looked like a giant golf ball on a hill, well to a young mind it did. The trig point is only another 50 meters behind this structure. From here you can see out to the Shannon estuary and also Thomond Park in all it's glory. Linkback:
