Parked at B* and entered the forest, (S 40812 75491 starB B) All nice underfoot. Followed Fergalh directions but found the mistake...it was a test.... wasn't it. Take the first turn to the LEFT not the right. Follow the path up to some sheds and turn right and follow a rough forest track uphill. When you reach the copse on the left, go over the fence and head uphill. When you see the Furze, head for it, TRIG point is easily found. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1212/comment/23278/
