Barnacuille IAA site

Information about IAA VHF transmitters sites is virtually non-existent, making it hard for anyone to figure out what are best frequencies to monitor in their area.

The IAA have a MSSR (Monopulse Secondary Surveillance Radar) radar site on the top of Barnacuillew near Dooncarton in County Mayo.
Grid ref F 81052 37530
54.272ºN 9.8268ºW

This site (aimed at mountaineers) has a photo of it from a distance showing there is both the radar tower, and a separate mast.

A second photo shows that the radar tower is festooned with VHF loops as well as microwave dishes, so it must be a VHF transmitting and/or receiving site.

Can anyone in County Mayo say which frequencies are transmitted from there?
