leaves of 3, let it be? pic

hi! we've had this vine growing up our shed for years. i've avoided it because it has 3 leaves (new growth is reddish), and the hairy vine. i've been told it's poison ivy, but i'd like a positive id. we had a friend pull it down a few years ago, and he didn't get the itchies, but he has since moved away. we bought the round-up poison ivy killer, but it didn't kill this thing.

Yes, poison ivy. Brush killer should take care of it. But multiple applications will most likely be needed. See those little hairs on the stem? Dead giveaway. The dead bark, I believe, can still give you a rash, even after it's been dead for a couple of years.

thank you for responding! i was afraid that the "diagnosis" would be confirmed... i will keep applying and reapplying the poison ivy killer till this monster is dead!
