I started from the North at M17631 34375 B. 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/
