You can park on the infrequently used road at R 983 089. There is a waymarked way sign there for the Avondhu Way, which crosses the road East-West. Follow this way for a while then head towards Crow Hill which is marked as being 1 metre shorter than Farbreaga. (Arguably it could be shown as another top in the 500m list.).
This picture is taken from Crow Hill towards Farbreaga. Farbreaga (the scarecrow) has an excellent view to the smaller hills to the west of the Knockmealdowns such as the wooded Carran Hill (361m). Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/415/comment/323/
