All farmland and wind turbines!
Short Summary created by paddyhillsbagger, jackill,  6 Jun 2012
Park at a small field entrance at R94525 53427 A on the narrow roadside where there was room for only one car.Walk back up the road towards Hollyford and cross the first gate to your right.
Be aware this is farmland so access may not always be possible so if you can ask the farmer.
Follow the fence/ditch on the left, initially next to a tree lined stream, crossing two fences and a farm track to the summit of Lackeenacreena which is marked by a few stones next to a wire fence.
Cross the wire fence onto a forestry edge track, follow this downhill, when it turns sharply right do not follow rather cross the fence in front to you and continue on across farmland.
Cross a tree lined ditch and then gently uphill to the summit area and its windmill.
Starting at R955 542 B you can follow the rough track up from the abandoned house. This leads onto the roadway for the Glenough Windfarm which provide easy access to Lackacrenna, Glenaneagh and Ring Hill. This track is departed for short off-road trips of 5 minutes duration to reach the actual summits. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/736/comment/5495/

From Lackenacreena I trotted on through pastures to reach the summit of Glenaneagh.
A bootful of water is a small price to pay for the variety of Reeds ,cuckoo flowers, bracken and moss that clog every step on this high boggy ridge. Below in the dark glens old houses long abandoned are kept company by century old trees planted by careful hands as shelter from the winter winds.On the ridge near the summit a wind speed survey mast newly erected in shining galvanise is in sharp contrast Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/736/comment/3564/

Peak bagging on a bike no.2

These three hills are now the centre of a wind farm and the views have changed quite a lot from the photos in the comments. However, this also means that the access roads that link the turbines are perfect for a mountain bike! I parked the car at R 95757 55907 C and followed the road uphill into the wind farm. I climbed Glenaneagh first, then on to Ring Hill and finally Lackenacreena, returning by the same route.
The tops were easy to get to...however, in the case of both Glenaneagh and Ring Hill, the access roads seem to be cut straight through the highest points...I don't know if there were trig points on these two tops before the wind farm, but there are none now.
Incidently, I made a track on my smartphone and tried to upload it but the track details seem to break down into 3 seperate tracks, walking, running and vehicle!
Total time and distance, one hour and twenty minutes, 9.4km. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/736/comment/17642/
