After a visit to Kill Hill, was able to access Killough Hill from S10424 51245 starB, room for a few cars on old farm road, followed track past an old ruined farmhouse to edge of woodland at base of hill, found a few vague trails through the woodland upwards
towards a quarry track which led to the edge of the large Quarry ,a prominent mound of debris sat atop the highest
point. This being a Sunday there was no one about Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1241/comment/23802/
