Mucky track to top

Take first right out of Durrow, drive to forest entrance (S 40812 75491 A). Park here and walk along forest trail take first right. Walk to top of hill at fence turn right along rough trail at top of hill around 600 metres cross into thicket and than into field to gorse and in the middle of gorse is the trig pillar.
