Approaching Graiguenamanagh by car from the east going across the bridge through the narrow streets and on to a big car park on the right before the roundabout. Walked up to the roundabout from the car park and turned left as per the sign for Inistogue. Turned right at the top of the hill and immediately left and its straight up all the way. Follow the sign marked by a cross when you get to a junction well above the last houses, ie: straight ahead. Took me an hour and three quarters to walk to the top of Brandon from the centre of Graiguenamanagh but I was pushing it. Great views. You can see a town towards the south.probably New Ross. It was a beautiful day. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/423/comment/6299/
