Rough track before rough ground
Short Summary created by jackill,  23 Mar 2015
Park on the side of the Mellary to Newcastle road just after you cross the border to Tipperary and past a now roofless constabulary barracks. There is room here for 5-6 cars.
Cross the road, down an embankment, over a rusty gate and follow the track toward. Knocknasculloge.
At a right angle corner on the track , near a forest edge S11780 07951 A , cross a wire fence.
Walk uphill about 100 meters to the summit over very rough ground. The summit is covered with old turf cutting banks. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/496/comment/5255/
