Short Summary created by jackill,  29 Dec 2011
Park on the roadside at S112 083 A on the Mellary to Newcastle road just after you cross the border to Tipperary and an abandoned farmhouse. There is room here for 5-6 cars.
You will notice there are two tracks running side by side uphill , take the right hand one and follow it uphill due west.
After 0.75 kms follow this track left (at this turn note the other new wide track turning to the right)and around the side of Knockmeal for about 1km.
When the track turns left again and slightly downhill to the col with Knocknafallia you will reach a wall running up Knockmeal and to the northeast.
Follow this wall as it turns left (north ) near the summit cairn of Knockmeal, down to the col and up again to Crohan West
You can also turn right as noted above and follow a new track until it starts to descend to the east. Leave the track at this point and cross the bog directly to Crohan Wests summit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/410/comment/5169/
