New Comment: New Pathway around the Summit
by TommyMc  Sat 10 Nov
A new pathway around the summit has been installed over the summer.

Walkers are now met with a locked gate within circa 50 yards of the masts and trig point, but a new and quite attractive pathway to the left leads around the perimeter of the summit area and leads to another, unlocked, gate which gives access to the summit proper.

Somewhat bizarrely, the visitor is still greeted with a misleading "No unauthorised persons beyond this point" sign at the gate at the foot of the access road. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/974/comment/20203/
