If you center the 25 miles on Blacksod, it seems the determining height is on Achill, so probably 3100 if the criteria is 1000 above. They came across at 4000.

If a real IFR approach were to be centered around Blackrock as an IAF, the design standard would be for a crossing height of 1400 feet with that designated as the initial approach phase. 500 feet for the next waypoint BKSDA.
