Slieve Glah is a small, but visible hill south of Cavan town near the village of Crosskeys. The map suggests two access tracks, but I could only find the start of the more convoluted longer track.
It's twenty minutes up to the telecoms masts, and as Paddyhillsbagger says, plenty of gorse near the summit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/932/comment/6084/

Picture: Reluctant Calfs Slieve Glah
Strong Calves required
by eamonoc  2 Nov 2013
Thursday 31/10/2013. Using comments from Mt Views for directions I arrived at the access track for Slieve Glah, got out of car and met a local farmer, he was about to let a herd of calfs out of a field just across the road from the access path and into a field beside the access path. I spoke to him and he asked me to help him get the calfs across the road, so I duly obliged. when the cattle were safely across the road and into the field, the farmer told me there was no problem with climbing this hill. It took about 20mins on a good path to climb Slieve Glah, the trig point is uphill behind the masts. Headed back to car and onto Bruse Hill.

Hooray for local hills! Despite tending to the garden in the morning and training for the Tri-Athlone in the afternoon, I still had time (and energy) to bag a climb!
I accessed Slieve Glah from the south on a minor road off the Cavan to Ballyjamesduff road. There are a plethora of communication masts and a rough track up to them. The trig point is about 100m beyond these masts up a rise. There are no clear paths beyond the masts and I had to fight through gorse and heather to get to the trig!
The views are worth the short discomfort and I followed a rough trail back down to the masts which exited to the left of the 2 masts on the right (looking down from the top) which was easier, but short trousers are not recommended! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/932/comment/3871/
