There must be an easier way!
by Bunsen7  16 Dec 2017
This is a rather painful hill to summit from the obvious parking spot at the forest entrance to the south east. Following where others have gone I found myself wading through head high gorse to attain the top. There must be an easier way up, perhaps from the graveyard to the west.
Apparently Sam MacAlastair, sidekick to Michael Dwyer is buried in the graveyard.
It seems that this top may be locally known as Kilranelagh Hill.
To the east there is a stone circle at S935 892 A which offers more interest than there is to be found at the summit area. There is also a rath near S932 891 B, but I was unable to locate the ogham stone marked on the OS.

Edit: After doing a bit of research I may have actually seen the ogham stone, which I think is within the rath and standing at an angle. The markings were perhaps shallower than I had expected! Such is the untrained eye! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1073/comment/19811/
