Climbed Friday 4/4/2014, started at S66395 44840 G, take the R703 Thomastown road out of Graiguenamanagh, at Coppenagh gap crossroads take right onto Dungarvan road, there is a 1798 monument at this crossroads. Croghan is clearly visible from here, after large two story house on the right take a right turn and drive uphill with Croghan to the left until a white bungalow with a black surrounding fence is reached, just across the road from this there is a metal gate giving acces to a really green grassy field with a white cross above in a prominent position uphill. Head steeply up to cross, pass it and onto higher ground, A vast array on communication masts are visible to the NE head towards them over some rough ground to summit area. Total time from car to car 25mins, and a distance of approx 1.5km Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1086/comment/15967/
