I started from the North at M17631 34375 A. Asked a local farmer who informed me hill was commonage and named Oldtown Hill. No problem with access but wet underfoot. Lovely sweeping views of Lough Corrib, Galway Bay and the Burren beyond. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1296/comment/18456/

Take first left after Moycullen, than park at M18610 33015 B near some houses in a row. Proceed through bog and fields to top behind marked with cairn. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1296/comment/15977/
