The narrow rutted track jackill refers to crosses Foildarg from east to west, and passes by the summit trig pillar. While it may be suitable for vehicles from the western approach, it would only be suitable for army tanks or monster rally trucks if driving up from the east. It is possible to pull a car some way up the track to get it off the main road. Then it is a walk of 20 mins along the increasingly deteriorating track to the summit. It is easy to see why the word ‘darg’ (from ‘dearg’ or ‘red’) makes it into the name Foildarg – the exposed soil of the track is a striking earthy red colour. This obviously relates to the red sandstone jackill refers to in his piece, and explains the logic of why locals call it Red Hill, as explained by Jimmy Barry.

A burnt out car and debris mar the summit area, but the wider views east across to Knockbane and the Lacenacreena – Glenaneagh group are pleasant, while rolling farmland sweeps south to the distant Galty Mountains. The memorial plaque to the pilot David Alan Addison who crashed here in 1968 remains in good condition at the trig pillar. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/660/comment/6268/
