Since hearing about this fascinating monument, I was intrigued as to its location and provenance. It is located a short distance off the Wicklow Gap to Blessington road. There is parking available at the track entrance.
It is only a short walk directly to the old cottage and on to the monument. I decided to track up onto the opposite bank of the stream to get some photos, but the weather would not assist.
Well worth spending a pleasant hour exploring this historic obelisk.
