Mount Leinster

Mount Leinster is a 794-metre-high (2,605 ft) mountain that straddles the border between Counties Carlow and Wexford. It is the fifth-highest mountain in Leinster, and the highest of the Blackstairs Mountains. A 2RN transmission site tops the peak with a mast height of 122 metres (400 ft). The mountain is most often climbed from the Nine Stones, a landmark point at the foot of Mount Leinster, about 8 miles east of Borris. From Borris there is a road to a visitor car park on the mountain. From there the steep 2RN access road leads to the summit. This road is closed to normal traffic and 2RN have now fenced off the transmitter mast from public access.
