North Sligo is certainly a very difficult place to go walking as far as access is concerned. To put it in perspective, on a road near Arroo, further north of Truskmore, somebody has painted on the road a number of times "NO Hillwalkers". Need I say more about the mentality!!!
As for Truskmore, I'm not sure the road up to the TV transmitter is a viable option either. The whole Gleniff valley is really a no go area for walkers. I've heard reports of cars being vandalised. The best way to get to Truskmore is by any points which are accessible to the south of Benbulben and from the north shore of Glencar lake. Recently went from Glencar following the old cable car route up to the mines. This is easily seen from the road as you drive out to Glencar. Saw no signs and had no trouble, but I can't guarantee this route either. You can also start from the point south of Benbulben, which I mention in a comment for that mountain. Thats certainly one of the more well known and popular access points up to the plateau, but its a long walk to Truskmore from there.
Access problems arise all the time. It could be a good idea to ask in Call of the Wild in Sligo town before you go, they tend to be up to date on whats happening. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/201/comment/2058/
