From the SE
by markmjcampion  14 Nov 2020
I approached from the SE, having turned off the N59 at L75135 48710 starD. I drove as far along the road as I could and then headed cross country. It had a wild and remote feel to it.
First I hit the stream at approx L72659 51631 starE and followed it north for about 500m before heading due West up to the summit. Rough enough under foot on the pull up to the top. I wasn't expected so much man made intrusion at the summit but it was a grand couple of hours nonetheless. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1148/comment/21353/
