Short Summary created by jackill,  21 Dec 2011
Park at the forest entrance R85087 56394 A room for 4-5 cars.There is more parking on the left approximately 200 meters to the north.
Hop a locked gate and walk directly uphill on the forest track until it swings right. Leave the forest track and continue uphill eastwards through the trees following a rough machine track.
As the trees begin to thin exit the forest northwards aiming for the lowest windmill.
This will bring you onto the windfarm road above the caretakers bungalow. Follow the road uphill to the fourth and last windmill. The summit is on the high mound just behind the windmill.
There are suggestions that this hill can also be climbed from the south side from near an abandoned, and vandalised, school. While you could certainly park near the school all access appears to be by farm tracks and open fields so permission could be required. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/642/comment/5401/
