Parked at the junction of road and lane at S204 942. Followed lane to "crossroads" which appears as a Tjunction. the grassy lane is offset a little to the left. After that a very pleasant walk up until you can see the top of the mast on the skyline. Then 250m of that special Slieve Bloom trudge through the undergrowth to the summit. As far as I can make out the summit is now the mound beside the mast. This may change as there is ongoing industrial bog clearance around the summit. 1 hour car to car and this seems to be an easier route than those of earlier commentators with no obvious danger of interferance with private property.
