Bog and heather
Short Summary created by jackill  9 Dec 2011
Park at R974 209 starA which is a forest entrance on the side of the main road between Cahir and Mitchelstown, room for 3 cars.Cross the barrier and follow the track through the forest going left then left again and across a sheepwire fence out on to the open hillside. The track marked on the OS 1:50000 map has stone walls on both sides however its after disappearing into the bog in many places and it is advisable to walk along the edge of it rather than on the track itself. This track leads all the way to the summit. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/228/comment/4988/
