Coming into Buncrana from Fahan turn right toward Joe Carlin & Co Accountants. Continue for 100 metres turning right again in the direction of Lisfannon Industrial Estate. Follow the road straight ahead (don’t turn right or left) and at the first sharp bend in the lane way there is an aluminium cattle gate. This is the access to the site and you will see that a road had previously been made but is now overgrown. The site for sale is at the top of this lane and identified by the wallsteads (ruins of an old house).
