From Drumshanbo take unclassified road to Aghacashel. After passing Aghacashel PO and going over a bridge take a left turn (signposted Ballinagleragh). Continue on for a few miles,
eventually passing through a forest and onto open moorland. Shortly after park at a layby on the right hand side with a waymarker and signposts for Slieve Anierin Way (GR H188 053 H). Take a track on the left of the road through what appear to be mine workings. When the track reaches
a rather indeterminate ending you are a short distance from the unmarked summit. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/416/comment/1451/
