Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, jackill,  26 May 2015
Park at the start of the tarred road at W14146 71751 A, room for 5-6 cars.Follow the very obvious gravel track uphill, passing through one gate to the summit trig pillar of Mweelin. Pass by the pillar and on to the track end.Go slightly uphill to find the sheepwire fence and follow this down into a small wet col then up to the summit of Lackabaun on the far side. Follow the wire fence from Lackabaun dog-legging south west across a boggy flat expanse before picking your way upwards through a rough area to reach a fence junction. Cross the fence and the summit is approximately 500 meters south on a rocky outcrop.

An alternative is to park at W098 707 B, beside the entrance to a wind farm. (The road up to this point is quite uneven in places but driveable.) Continue directly up the track ahead to W104 704 C where you'll see a gate. Cross this and turn south, following the fence all the way to W101 692 D. You will need to follow the curve of the hill around to the SE, where you will see the small summit cairn after a few hundred metres. The terrain is very rough - peat hags, boggy, long heather, and generally very unpleasant for walking, especially near the summit. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/395/comment/5154/
