This mountain shows up for a long way as a conical peak (when viewed from the east) and has been described as West Cork's Matterhorn - but the resemblance disappears when close up. We reached it from a long and quiet road between Kealkil and Inchigeelagh that runs between this mountain and Douce mountain. From this road we followed a track which led most of the way to Lough Nadirkmore. From the lake the rest of the way is visible and there were no surprises. We walked to the main ridge and then followed it to the top. The slopes are very steep to north and south of the ridge. It was hazy so our views were limited but I expect they could be very good.
As far as I know this mountain is called Shehy or Shehy Mor, although this is not marked on the OS map Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/365/comment/958/
