Flattish heathery summit with some views.
Short Summary created by simon3  18 Oct 2011 One way of reaching this summit is from the south starting on the R497 at R91326123 (Point A). Walk straight up the tarmac road heading NE until a gate which is at around 325m which is above most cultivation. Although the OSi map shows a track invitingly leading towards a forest and forest edge road, don't take this unless you are wearing wellies. Instead head directly towards higher ground and eventually to the summit. As of 2011 there is a high mast to the right near Reisk on the map which could well be a test for a future windfarm.
The unmarked top is flat and not very exciting though its position is good for views of much of the Shannons such as Mauherslieve, Keeper Hill, the Silvermines and the eastern Shannons Benduff-Devilsbit ridge.
Point A: R9132 6123

A hidden gem
by aidand  24 Oct 2011 I climbed Cummer using the the roadway shown on the OS map. This leads up past 3 recently built bungalows. Straight ahead is a hill with a large mast. This is the neighbouring hill of Reisk. Head up the laneway towards Reisk. The track swings sharp left and gets narrower and muckier. As Simon3 says wellies would be useful. The track enters the forest by a broken down gate. Keep right here and follow the edge of the forest up to the top of the ridge and then left to the flattish unmarked summit. The views in all directions are excellent. Lough Derg was visible to the north. Allow 1 hour for the return trip.
