Followed Fergalh's excellent directions up to the top. Overgrown path may need trimming to get through in growing season. Took my 5yr old granddaughter along for the adventure but she got a little scared with the high winds at the top. Smiles afterwards however. Fine views all round.

Behind quarry

At Moate take road to the pretty village of Rosemount. Drive through village and turn left around west side of mountain. At quarry there is a sign for site of old church (N2401043352 A) proceed up this overgrown path to the top cross through gap into field turn right and proceed to top than cross through gap in fence to field the promentary with trig pillar is clearly visible.

Always ask landowner permission to cross land, never ever damage fences and beware of livestock. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1293/comment/15809/
