Short Summary created by thomas_g  24 Mar 2014
Access is via a paved track from the south, this track crosses farmland to a reservoir. Access to the trig point is via a farm field and some scrubby ground. Views are good from the top, the Galtys in particular.
I spoke to the farmer who's land the track crosses, while the trig point is not on his land, he did not foresee any access issues. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1318/comment/15562/
