The gravel track at L6133851903 B will bring you up to the second quarry workings allowing you to park at L6213651955 C and enter the open hillside via a gate just inside the quarry to the left. No signs exist forbidding entry that is usually expected in an active quarry. Based on the machinery present this is not an every day working outfit . Although the summit has its trig an unusual cairn exists near by. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1324/comment/19519/
