As suggested by zeaphod, I came up Rocky Mountain via Round Seefin and Long Seefin, having parked on the small track beside Rourke's Park. As you aproach Round Seefin, there's a sign suggesting you go via one of the quarries mentioned by zeaphod rather than the direct route following the wall. I'd suggest ignoring this, as it's more straightforward just following the wall! Rocky Mountain is blessed with some lovely views, including tantalising glimpses of Ben Crom as it peeps through the col between Slieve Binnian and Slievelamagan. Note that the cairn (shown in my photo) isn't actually at the highest point of the mountain. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/406/comment/2013/
