Turn off the main road at S67766 42279 A, taking care when near this point as its easy to miss the turn off.
The forest entrance,S68218 41485 B, can be locked so you may need to park(space for 2 cars) and walk. At S68848 40961 C cross a stile to your right and follow a rough track next to a stone wall uphill.At S69243 40632 D turn right up the track to the summit.
The summit has a large rusting metal cross from 1984, a cairn, a hut and a pillar that locates and names features visible on the surrounding landscape. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/423/comment/5182/
