The way to summit of Clondermot Hill lies not via the masts access track, but via the fields instead. Whilst asking if it was ok to park near a Farm House i also asked about the track, while the two people chatting agreed that the track may be a right of way, the land owner was very likely to challenge anyone walking up the track. Both recommended walking up by the "pole" (on the west side) instead, as this was the way they always went to the summit. After driving back and forth on the minor road we stopped to ask a runner, he directed us back the way we came with much the same description as we had been given before, this time we found the pole, or I should say a pole!

From this point we walked through a gate uphill several fields, reaching the summit area which was bisected by a 3 way wall junction. The wall being the highest point, with ground on either side being of a similar height, best to visit both sides then! Descent was by way of ascent.

If going to climb this hill, i would enquire locally or ask anyone you meet about the best way up, as everyone we asked had been to the top via the fields, rather than the track to the mast. So there seems to be no problem with ascending this way, but it never hurts to make sure in these cases. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1026/comment/4038/
