New summit point?
by Jamessheerin  14 Oct 2016
For an alternative way up and especially if you are stuck for time, turn at R09959 79101 A, go through gate and park at abandoned house R10567 79047 B. Be careful if ground clearance in your car is an issue? Take right fork at R11004 79072 C, follow track left at R11128 78979 D and it will curve around to the east... straight to the summit, eventually.
I would take issue with the grid reference (R12294 79568 E) given for this mountain though, its about 200m off. I found the highest spot to be R12097 79564 F. I spent some time at this, checking all the high spots and lumps, both with GPS and altimeter. I would be reasonably certain that my grid ref is the proper summit?
And the tractor in the photo? It's not mine... I just borrowed it for the day! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1209/comment/18655/

The tractor, a shadow of it`s former glory
by eamonoc  4 Mar 2019
Visited Slieveacurry on 27th Feb, was eagerly looking forward to finding the tractor as mentioned in James Sheerin`s
post dated 14th Oct 2016. Found it ! a shadow of it`s former glory and a sad testament to a culture of dumping in the Hils of Ireland. Having said all that Slieveacurry is a testy littlle hill with great views north to the Cliffs of Moher and Lahinch Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1209/comment/20445/

Clare's finest
by Fergalh  15 Jun 2014
Park at R11066 79942 G cross gate and proceed up track and take sharp first right. When you get near edge of forest turn due east to visible top and cross boggy hinterland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1209/comment/17499/
