(visited by Christopher Anton)

17-Sep-2004 -- I've been meaning to visit this confluence for some time as I have to pass within 2 miles of it every time I drive to visit my sister in North Wales. Usually there's an excuse such as I'm running late or it's dark, or raining - although this is no excuse really as this is a confluence you can visit without getting out of the car which probably explains the huge number of visits!

Anyway this time I parked in the lane and walked about 5 mins to the spot. Looking west from where my all singing-all dancing new Meridian Color (sic) says is the correct spot. There has been some dispute from previous visitors whether it's on the road or in the field just beyond the barbed wire, or even as far as the small stream visible. Anyway the bogginess of the field had been remarked on before and I wasn't going over the wire to investigate further as it had been raining hard.

The missing cardinal views are North , East - a bit boring this one, South .

Next month is a conference in Dublin and a friend and I are then going to climb Carantuohill taking in a hold host of under-visited and poorly documented Irish confluences on the way.
