Rather than start at Cahredaniel, I took a right from the N70 about 3km before the town at road signposted for 'Coad'. At the top of this road one meets the Kerry Way and there is plenty of room to park outside what looks like a building for housing farm machinery, at point V577607 E. I then headed west for a few hundred metres until I came to a signpost, taking the Waterville direction which skirts Eagles Hill. Rather than folow the Kerry Way which goes close to the summit but leaves one a very steep final ascent, I turned NW where a stream crosses the track the steeply sided mountain opens up a little in terms of access, at point V580620 F. After a few hundred metres negotiation rocky, furze-lined gulleys I veered NE again and reached the top after about 90 minutes. The ascent proved much more interesting than the summit which is a long, broad grassy bog-like top, the summit at the NE end marked only by a single white rock placed upon a turf mound.
