A long hard slog for a small hill !
by Fergalh  1 Mar 2014
Park at (G 64171 27730 starA) 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: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1294/comment/15863/
