Short but Hard Bag.

Took the approach mentioned by Fergalh. There is room to squeeze a car at the mast. Then head North up the road for a few hundred metres looking for the summit cross on the left. Once you see it, head across the bog. Although the cross does not seem far away, the ground and a few fences make this a harder bag than you might think. Thankfully it's a quick one.
