Approaching Graignamanagh from the New Ross side take the Inistigue road at the roundabout and turn immediately left onto a surfaced road,I followed this road to a grassy area not far past a waterworks and parked up.Follow this narrow laneway for about 1 km to a farmyard where the road turns into a forest track with Brandon hill loop waymarked.At the first main junction you can follow the waymarked loop trail or if you want to cut out kms of monotous forest track stay straight on following white signs marked with a cross past Frenys well and up through Gorlough Woods on a mixture of forest tracks and trails to the summit.The weather and the company been good we decided to complete the loop walk today,reaching the summit from the SE to witness fantastic 360 degree views which are well pointed out by the view marker at the summit,some good stone shelters up here as well as the rusting cross.distance 16 km,time taken 3hrs 40 mins,ascent 503 m,descent 607m.
