Memorial, Ger McDonnell and options.
In the last MV Newsletter there was a piece attempting to balance the heartfelt need to remember people such as Ger McDonnell with the desire to respect the non-artificial, semi-wild nature of hill and mountain summits. (See http://mountainviews.ie/newsletters/month/2010-10/ )
One issue discussed was that of people declaring their desires or intentions in the event of their death with respect to intrusive memorials.
Serenditiously, one approach you might consider comes to light today, courtesy of the Irish Times - the Green Graveyard. Article:

Mangerton North Top: On the way to Mangerton
MountainHunter a day ago.
I started at Point A car park and followed the path. At about 520m (-9.4817 51.9882) the path swings westward, as you walk along the path, the coum for the Devil's Punchbowl comes into view. After...

Slieve Bawn: No longer a drive-up
TommyMc a day ago.
A series of new road barriers means that it's no longer possible to drive further than the car park on the Strokestown side. A very pleasant walk uphill from the car park to the summit and back to...

Knockalongy South-West Top: Beware of the barrier
madfrankie a day ago.
We followed sandman's route to the summit which is probably the best way to explore Knockalongy and its satellites. Gentle gradients but many eroded peat hags. Worth noting that the forest barrier...

Caherbarnagh East Top: An unremarkable summit, worth the visit for the views.

The summit is unremarkable though easy to spot as it lies along the fence.

Caherbarnagh East Top: An easy stroll from Caherbarnagh.
David-Guenot a week ago.
There is a gate to cross when coming down from the cairn at the NE end of the main Caherbarnagh ridge (I found it was actually easier to cross the fence just right of the gate). There is a faint t...

Caherbarnagh East Top: A worthwhile addition.
David-Guenot a week ago.
This summit is easily reached from the main Caherbarnagh ridge and seems easy enough to get to from Curracahill as well. If coming from Caherbarnagh, best is to cross the fence just before the col...
