A long hard slog for a small hill !
by Fergalh 1 Mar 2014
Park at (A (G64171 27730)) beside pylon..walk back down towards where the electricty lines cross the road at wall running uphill there is a path follow path running alongside wall which eventually turns left. Follow path uphill until when path stops head north east and climb alongside the wall face of ridge to fence. Cross fence and head downhill to stream. At stream cross fence and head upstream. The hill can be seen now bearing northeast and a few ridges have to be crossed to access. Ground is uneven and boggy underfoot.

Always ask landowner permission to cross land, never ever damage fences and beware of livestock. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1294/comment/15863/

Picture: Slieveward
Fine views from small top.
by paddyhillsbagger 19 Apr 2015
The OSi map has Slieveward at B (G652 275) and 189m whilst the summit on Mountainviews is as above. I started at C (G65492 26718) at the top of a farm rd. I spoke to a local farmer who was fine with leaving the car there (room for 2) and OK for climbing the hill. He mentioned there was an old track for a mass rock. I did find a small laneway but it petered out on the lower slopes and dense scrubby undergrowth impeded a short climb to a heather and rock unmarked top. Marvelous views all round and an added bonus of my 1st Red Admiral of the year flying round the summit. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1294/comment/17936/
