Short Summary created by markmjcampion, jackill  18 Aug 2023
Greenane is a grassy, rocky plateau to the E of Galtymore. It overlooks the Glen of Aherlow and, closer, Lough Muskry and its corry to the N. Further afield are extensive views of the Knockmealdowns and Comeraghs. V steep ground to the N should command respect in all weather.

N. Park at forest entrance near Rosadrehid at R91744 28241 starA. Follow forest track S for 2k before coming to a gate at R92408 26675 starB that leads out onto open mountain. Once a suitable point is found to cross the river, climb the spur to Farbreega. From here follow the ridge to Greenane. 2hrs+ This can be done as part of a horseshoe…see track/1587

SW. Start from carpark at R89306 20345 starC and follow the Black road, a rocky, easy-to-follow track that winds around the W flank of Knockeenatoung and up towards Galtybeg. When you reach a large cairn at a 'Y' in the track go straight ahead and aim for R89703 24136 starD, the col over Bohreen Lough, and then uphill and across a broad boggy plateau to the summit of Greenane W. Continue E dropping slightly by the rocky tor of O'Loughlins castle after which you will need to wind gingerly through v wet bog before the final ascent to the summit trig of Greenane. 2.5 hrs+

S. Park at R92426 19821and head N through the forest. Aim to clear the forest in the vicinity of R92476 22043 starE, head up E to gain the SSE ridge of G and make your way steeply to the summit. 2 hrs
