Paddy Dillon [The Mountains of Ireland] includes Slievemore in a walk that goes over the Croughans and certainly that would be perfectly possible, however so far all of the contributors here as of March 2008 have described routes with just Slievemore as the target. One way to do it is to start from near the "Deserted Village" a line of decrepti stone built houses, now lacking roofs, which were abandoned around 1850.

Near there we met an interesting farmer who told us a bit about the area. At present Slievemore is owned by 557 people and is very much commonage. Around F 6382 0833 C (open to correction) there is a large white rock. From here, in penal times, a watch would be kept for the movement of the authorities. Mass was said in the Keem valley and warning could be given from this rock.

The photo shows the trig pillar as it is today, decorated with a firmly attached golden ball which must have appeared in the last year since Grayarea's pic of 2007 doesn't show it. What is the purpose of this giant bauble? My thoughts have ranged from a prankish gold painted buoy , through New Age replacement for the Mass to geophysical experiment. I haven't ruled out alien eggs either. Definitely a superior treatment of the largely redundant trig pillar, the species which have fared well as in the white painted one on Sugar Loaf near Glengarriff to cast down and broken as in Carnmore.
