We climbed Greenane last weekend, basically using the same route discribed by Portamb. This follows the right most gulley in the coum wall at the rear of Lough Muskry and is gully No. 1 in Lynch's book on Munsters Mountains. It would have been nice to have done one of the harder gullies but there was still quite a bit of snow in all the gullies. Descended by Borheen Lough and the valley back to the car park. Route finding was difficult as it was getting dark and we could not find much of a track so we mainly followed the edge of the forest until we picked up a stream which turns into the yellow road shown on the OSI map.

The only spoiler (besides twisting my ankle) on to a fine trip was seeing the landscape being churned up and the bog destroyed by quad bikers and cross country motorcyclists around Lough Muskry. The area is probably an SAC (Special Area of Conservation) under the Habitats Directive and as such damage to the habitat would be a criminal offence.
