paddyhillsbagger on Mullaghanoe
by paddyhillsbagger 4 Oct 2009
Well, what is there to say about this hill? I drove up a rough farm or forest track of a minor road out of Garracastle on the old N5. Communication masts rise above the forest and I took a few turns reaching the track that leads up to them. I parked and as the OS map has the summit slightly behind the masts, made my way through the forest to a small clearing at the rear of the fenced area. Hardly worth the effort as there are no views due to the trees and you only end up a stones throw behind the masts before the land begins to slope away. Disappointed I made my way back to the N5 where the hill appears barely as a forested rise. One for the list tickers! Linkback:

Forest walk in the rain
by three5four0 14 Jul 2010
Followed the minor roads out of Carracastle (A (G545 002), B (M542 994) & C (M537 995), being the appropriate road junctions) and parked at a track junction at D (M533 985). A 4 wheel drive vehicle is more suitable for this last track, as it is of the gravel forestry type.

Walked along the tracks to the communication masts, a new track, unmarked on the map, branches off just where you make a sharp right turn for the final ascent to the masts. At the masts, I crossed a barbed wire fence (on the right) and made my way round to the far side of the masts, which is as interesting as paddyhillsbagger says. Given the size of the summit contour, I went for a wander in a north east direction. Well, it was a bit of an assault course really, over fallen trees and moss covered ditches, but I did get a gps height reading one metre higher than I did at the masts!

There was an old planning notice tied to the masts railings, so it appears that there is further "development" to come on this MV summit. Oh, and the position of the road & mast on the map (& satmap) is a little off, according to my gps readings. Linkback:

Strictly Come Bagging
by Pepe 18 Oct 2023
Drove up the gravel road and parked. From here it's about a kilometre stroll up to the mast area. It's very overgrown around the compound now but it's possible to squeeze in along one side of the fence and jiggle around a bit to what might be the actual summit.
No views up at the mast but it's a pleasant stroll to kill a half hour or so on the road to the West. Strictly to be ticked off - not worth doing this one more than once. Linkback:

Forest harvesting and mast compound
by TommyV 30 May 2023
The route already mentioned seems to be the only logical way to approach this very bland hill. I drove as far as far as a forest barrier and even though it was open I still decided to walk from here. From the barrier it's about a kilometre to the summit. I found that getting around the mast compound was not worth the effort. This is very much Coilte logging territory, I bagged this hill on a Sunday so there was no activity at the time. Linkback:
