Parking is restricted from the direction i ascended the hill but having sorted parking and for an easy ascent enter thru field gate located at W2002640495 A .You need to cross two fences to reach the summit area but they are in bad state of repair. Again a summit for hillbaggers only. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1298/comment/18637/
