In search of the elusive "pole", a truly ripping .. by Harry Goodman   (Show all for Clondermot Hill (Cnoc Chlann Diarmada))
 
You are best to Ascend this Summit by asking permission to park and Walk up it f
by jimmyread  7 Aug 2015
We tried to ascend this hill today from the pole at Kittybane Road mentioned by others, but there were high doubled barbed wire fences that were dangerous to climb and the gorse was impassible. We decided to try to ascend via the access track from Gortinure Road to the transmitter, but as mentioned by others the land owner did challenge us and said that the track was private property and the there was a transmitter track from the north that we could access. We drove back down Kittybane Road and turned right onto Corrody Road and then found a track to the right which the drove up and then parked at the end of the track. At this point a farmer came up to us and said that there was no track to the transmitter from this end and the ascent would be full of ditches and mentioned to try the transmitter track from Gortinure Road, we mentioned that the tried this and the land owner to us to ascend up to the transmitter from this end. The farmer was surprised that this land owner would not let us use this track and recommended that we go to a farm on Trench Road, just past the right folk for Church Road and this farm was under the name of Walsh. We drove up to this farm (C442128 E) and the farmer there gave us permission to ascent to the summit of Clondermot Hill via his fields and allowed us to park in his farm as well. This was a steep route, but easier going than the route from the pole at Kittybane Road. This farmer was also surprised that the land owner would not let people walk up the transmitter track even through it is probably is a public right of way. The best way to ascend Clondermot Hill is from Walsh farm on Trench Road, not from the pole on Kittybane Road, but ask the farmer for permission through before ascending this hill from this farm.
