Remote and wild, but surprisingly accessible.
Short Summary created by thomas_g  8 May 2012
Access is easy from the north from W15234 62101 A via a track to the lake and a quick walk to the ridge where navigation is easy thanks to the fence. Access also seems possible from the south via farm tracks (with permission).
The top itself is nothing special, but the views are nice and going is easy once you are on the ridge.
A circuit that takes in Shehy More and Shehy SW top should take less than 3 hours at an easy pace. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/365/comment/5124/
