Straight forward bag.

Straight forward out and back route on a Coilte track to the masts at the top. Make sure to take the track to the left at W13586 53096 C as this is the one that leads to the summit but if you weren't aware it does look like continuing straight on is the way as the correct track had a felled tree.
