Parking beside forest entrance S5437702608 A walk in track keeping left at waterworks and after app 40m at S5459602442 B turn left uphill over a faint track which will bring you to the clearing shown in photo, the location of some late night raves. The summit is further on in the heavy foliage. I visited various spots just to be on the safe side, hopefully in the near future the experts with the proper equipment will verify same. Although this area has numerous walking trails the summit in its present state is not visitor friendly . Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1494/comment/18281/
