A very worthy addition to the MV lists.
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  23 May 2014
Park at J1300510104 A and 150 metres further SW along the road cross a stile on the right. Follow the track due S up along the forest edge to its crest before bearing off SE to pass a memorial plaque to an aircraft crash J1311308998 B. Continue up ESE over grass and heather and around several rocky outcrops to gain the top marked by a trig pillar. Alternatively from the parking place walk SE along the road for 1km to J1360199659 C. Cross a gate on the right and go up a couple of fields keeping the fence on the right. Further up to avoid some scrambling cross the fence on to thick clumpy grass and follow the fence line up to a sharp turn left and a narrow gap between two rocky out crops JJ1357409019 D. From here go SSE to a noticeable grassy ramp some 200 metres along and use it to gain the top some 50 metres further. The walk to the top of this hill presents splendid views NE and N to Slieve Foye and the Cooley Mts while to the S, over Dundalk Bay, is the long flat coastline of Louth and Meath and the more distant outline of the Dublin hills. A very worthy addition to the MV lists. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1119/comment/15363/

The Trig is the Top!
by Trailtrekker  20 Mar 2014
Of the January 2014 Binnion additions this has to be one of the best and well done to those who added it. Of those who have been out there early doors I hope that you visited the trig point at J 13679 08759 E, as this is the true summit and not the one initially marked down as such!

I accessed the summit using the way marked Annalough Loop starting at the car park of Fitzpatricks restaurant and bar. If using this way marked trail to access the summit you can start here, or there is an easier access point from the stile at J 13084 10063 F, which is higher above sea level and a shorter trip to the top, it has ample car parking and will make your walk a bit shorter. By using the Annaloughan Loop, whether walking all or part of it, just off it is the site of a 1942 Plane Crash which claimed 15 victims. It was the most tragic crash in Ireland in the entire WWII/Emergency period, of which there were many, although despite this it is one of the lesser known crashes to have happened in our hills! The memorial to the crash is beside a rocky outcrop at J 13113 08998. The best account that I have found of it online is on the link below and I would suggest that you have a read of same before setting out for the hill.
http://www.skynet.ie/~dan/temp/al577/AL577_MOReilly.pdf
The legs of the plane can still be seen in the nearby bog, but I will leave it to those who read the article to ascertain where! The area around here is wet under foot and from here you can take a bearing towards the summit.

There is another point of interest on the way marked loop! Although not as aesthetically outstanding as the many neolithic tombs in this area, the Rockmarshall court tomb is probably the oldest of them all! It is marked on the OSi map and the remnants of it can be found at J 12500 08000 G. While I'm mentioning neolithic tombs in the area, you really should check out Proleek Dolmen and it's impressive 40 tonne capstone which is a gentle stroll out the back of the grounds of the nearby Ballymascanlon hotel.

This is an area that has produced some of Louth and Ireland's greatest sport stars in recent years, the nearby Gaelic Football Club has been the most successful in Louth for the past decade. Their finest product being Paddy Keenan, Louth's first All Star and International player. While the brothers Kearney, both recent winners of the rugby six nation championship, are from just a few miles further out the road! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1119/comment/15934/

History on the hills.
by paddyhillsbagger  20 Jan 2015
15 airmen lost their lives on this hill in 1942. There is a memorial mentioned in Harry Goodman's comment and an excellent website for further info on dp_burke's comment. What I wasn't expecting and stumbled upon was the landing gear of that fateful plane still sitting on the hillside. A little time to reflect on those that have gone before does not go amiss. It's also worth noting the permanence of the mountains compared to our short time on them. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1119/comment/17810/

Great views for short but steep climb
by Fergalh  1 Mar 2014
Take Omeath road out of Jenkinstown at forest turn right and than park at J14075 09486 H. Next cross gate and follow rough track up hill,this track peters out in places but is roughly to the right of the 3 or 4 ridges before you get to the top.There is a small cairn on top this can be a steep in places but worthwhile climb.

Always ask landowner permission to cross land, never ever damage fences and beware of livestock. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1119/comment/15866/
