Short Summary created by thomas_g,  17 Jan 2014
Parked at W33833 50501 A (room for 1 car), walk back up the hill to a gate at W33989 50434 B, then follow the track up the hill. At the top of the hill you meet several masts and an interesting cross which appears to have been erected in 1950. The trig point itself is on top of a cement plinth and offers reasonable views from a somewhat flat hill top. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1252/comment/15496/
