Short Summary created by jackill  24 May 2012
Park at the forestry entrance W13673 54386 A, room for 2-3 cars. Walk uphill on a generally good forest road to the summit. As mentioned by thomas_g there are " you are on a farm signs" a little way along this track but they seem to point both ways , I took them to possibly refer to an access track between them , a distance of less than 100 meters. Also there is a standard Coillte rules of access sign at the start of this track so access should be fine.
the summit is a mess of bulldozed ground, portacabins and aerials. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/384/comment/5143/
