If times a factor

If you don't mind some fairly steep assents and a little bit of bog then a handy way up Eagle Mountain and Shanlieve is to follow the line of Batt's Wall from a forest track on Rostrevor road J216 237 A. This was the quickest and most straight forward route I could find and took 2 hours 40 minutes, giving me the rest of the day to do some of the higher peaks to the west Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/217/comment/15035/
