Almost a summit.
Short Summary created by jackill  8 Jul 2015
Start from the roadside north of Kilcash at S317 288 A just in front of a farmyard.Park on the roadside, which is narrow, as best you can room for 7-8 cars . Be careful not to obstruct the farm entrances. A rough signposted track leads off to the west, up to the summit of Slievenamon. The route up the mountain is on a substantial track so you can't really go wrong, just follow it uphill with the forestry on your right.
At the top of this track is a concrete building with bits of decaying aerial near it. Go past this uphill to the north on a gradual slope to the summit area of Slievenamon. Head downhill north on steep ground before a gradual rise to the summit of Slievenamon North-West Top which is marked by a cairn of flat stones and what appears to be an excavated cist grave. At this point is well worth continuing to Knockahunna and Slievenamon North-East Top making a good circuit in an isolated mountain area.
