Leave for the winter
by mcrtchly  2 Jun 2014
We visited this summit in June but found the field mentioned by Fergalh to be sown with a cereal crop and not wishing to disturb the crop we chose not to attempt an ascent. This hill is probably best left for winter or post-harvest. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1295/comment/16090/

Big field to cross first
by Fergalh  1 Mar 2014
Drive north of Mullingar on the Castlepollard road (R394) until you get to Taughmon Church. There is a sign for Owens concrete just beside the church. Drive along this road till you get to Owens concrete (N4290561893 A). Opposite the quarry there is a very large field at the top of this veer to right and you will reach the summit....

Always ask landowner permission to cross land, never ever damage fences and beware of livestock. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1295/comment/15807/

Follow the field.
by paddyhillsbagger  5 Feb 2014
Should have followed Fergalh's route but spotted a path on the map a bit further on and thought I'd give it a try. Bad move. Path petered out on crest of hill and got gouged by gorse and tangled in bramble to make the conifer planted top. Wasted more time crawling in the plantation looking for a high point. Best I could come up with is a skeletal tree in a clearing in the midst of the conifers. Fine views when you emerge from copse. Followed the easy route back down following the field boundaries to quarry entrance and was rewarded by spotting a soaring buzzard back up on the hill.
