And a close second...
by Conor74  24 Jul 2014
And I can vouch for vechnylad, as I was a second behind him!

We parked at V85008 74787 A in front of a small quarry, crossed the fence into it and scrambled up the face of it - very straightforward, can be easily walked around for anyone not keen on using the hands. From there we made straight for the summit, going was boggy in places and had to keep one eye on cows in the field. Getting to the summit involved crossing another fence. Nice views over the Finnihy Valley from the summit, a very straightforward 20 minute walk from the car. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1090/comment/17567/
