Only one way up
by TommyMc  19 Sep 2019
The only practical way to access this hill is from near the locked quarry gates on the road in front of it. I attempted it across the fields and scrub to the north via the adjacent masts, and the combination of furze, long grass, brambles and the odd wet ditch made for an unpleasant walk that I couldn't recommend to anyone.

On the bright side, quarrying seems to have permanently ceased on the hill itself, although the quarry approx a half-mile to the south is as busy as ever, and there are extensive views in all directions. What I saw of the quarry did not suggest any particularly dangerous hazards. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1156/comment/20653/
