Turn off the N30 onto the L4013,signposted Lacken,turn right at first junction and forest entrance is a short distance on the left.I followed the Dunbrody forest trail up onto the hill crossing two gates up to a clearing,turn right here up a laneway marked with a rebellion monument sign before crossing a stile onto the summit marked with a holy year cross and rebellion monument.Nice autumn stroll through the forest onto this history soaked hill.Good views on a clear day but today some lingering fog spoiled this.
