Modest hill with an access issue.
Short Summary created by aidand,  18 Aug 2015
From Kinnitty village take the road South towards Roscrea. Take the first turn left signposted 'Slieve Bloom Mountains'. Drive 1.1 miles up this road until you reach a white house on your left. Park here and then walk up the track and cross the gate into the forest. The forest road leads directly to the summit. Close to the summit a fence has been erected across the road with 'No Trespassing' signs. Car to car takes about 45 minutes. Most of the walk is in coniferous forest with limited views.
