Much better views than you'd expect.

Followed Jackhill's instructions and got to the summit fairly easily, having about an hour before darkness, we decided to try the variety option. Heading down a fairly steep track east from the summit along a forestry fence, we never found the clearing to allow us to cut across to S38091128 F.
With darkness looming we bailed out onto the road at S38901130 G and had a long dark damp 6/7km walk back to the car at S36451 10191 A. Despite all that, I'll be back, the views on a fine day would be second to none. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/851/comment/6668/
