Approaching from the north (Aherlow), there is place to park at the end of a lane at R869 273 A, space for one or two cars. A track (difficult to follow initially) ascends Slievecushnabinnia's eastern slopes, crossing the remains of a barrow, and continuing along a post-marked track that gets more bouldery as the terrain steepens.
Lough Curra Mountain (600m) is an anomaly. It doesn't really feel like a 'mountain' but on the other hand, it does fullfill the criteria to be on he Vandeleur-Lynam list - 600m and over with 15m of prominence.
Perhaps one idea might be to rename it 'Lough Curra Top'?
Nevertheless this is an impressive amphitheatre, and well worth the visit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/277/comment/6208/
