Wooded summit, easily reached but without view.
Short Summary created by simon3  8 Sep 2014
This summit is part of a low NS ridge east of Bagnalstown. It is in a wood and is easily reached from a forest entrance at S74901 65414 A.

The wood is relatively small, perhaps 500 X 600m and as of 2014 does not have an extensive network of forest roads so has little opportunity for walking. There is also an amount of rubbish around. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1281/comment/15525/
