(visited by Ross Finlayson)

01-Aug-2008 -- Taking a week's vacation following a conference in Dublin, I headed west from Dublin towards Galway. I found that my trusty GPS was routing me along the M7 motorway, which I knew would take me not far north of [53.-7], so I decided to take a detour from Kildare to Athy to visit this confluence point.

As other visitors have reported, this confluence point lies within a well-tended private home (either the house itself, or the back yard). From the nearby road, I was able to get within 20 meters of the confluence point.

Coordinator's Note: Would any future visitors please note that if you stand and face the row of bungalows, then the CP lies right by the very right front corner wall of the last house on the right hand end.
