conormcbandon, well spotted.
This does appear to be an error on the 1:50000 map series.
The height we use on this hill comes from the older 6" maps from the 19th century which gives a trig height of 779 feet. Convert this to meters and you get 237.4392 and then allow for the change of datum from Poolbeg to Malin (difference of 2.7 meters) and you come up with a value of 234.7392 meters.
We round this off to 235 meters.

There are some inconsistancies in the 1:50,000 map series which we know the OSi are endeavouring to address in the more modern reprints. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1240/comment/17802/
