Laboured walk to a nondescript top.
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  15 Oct 2013
Park near a farm H0075579144 A where the surfaced road ends and continues on as a stone and gravel forestry track. Follow it straight ahead passing around a metal entrance gate and some 2.5 km along at H0301179723 B note a wide but rough track going off to the left (NE). Follow this up and be prepared for a 1km walk over a very boggy, deeply rutted and uneven surface made more difficult by frequent patches of branch debris left over from forestry workings. Progress will be slow. Eventually the track clears the forest and come out onto a grassy slope which leads up to the col H0387080200 C between Croaghmeen and Croaghnameal. The high point on Croaghmeen lies to the NW. Go initially up a steep but short grassy slope and then continue across a wide expanse of relatively flat open moorland of peat hags and long grass. The top is unmarked, nondescript and lies within a small almost imperceptible 400m ring contour at H0303780473 D. The walk out and back is 8.5km with 5km on a good flat forest track. A walk to this hill can be combined with one to Croaghnameal by climbing up to the top from the col between the two hills at H0387080200 C and descending by the ascent route described in the short summary for Croaghnameal, a round of just over 10km.
