Short Summary created by jackill, Colin Murphy,  30 Jul 2012
Park at the end of a long forest rack at G 0349 0239 A (info courtesy of csd), although the track has deteriorated badly in a couple of spots and care is needed if you don’t want to damage the underside of your car! There is room to park here for 2-3 cars. Head north up a very steep slope for about 300m and the summit will be visible about 1km away to the NW. From here it is easy going, with the ground underfoot fairly solid and covered in nice short grass. On a good day the summit can be reached in less than an hour. A fine top in it's own right with great views of Bireencorragh itself, but it can also be the first stop on a wonderful 4-5 top horseshoe encompassing Bireencorragh West Top, Mount Eagle (optional), Bireencorragh and Knockaffertagh - a walk of about seven hours.
