Paved road most of way to unremarkable top
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, thomas_g,  29 Feb 2016
Not a lot to recommend here: horrid ground, clear felled trees, power lines, transmitters and a wind farm.
You can access from the south (windfarm - private), North (marked private road) or probably best from the East (Coillte land).
From the east, parking for one car at W124 775 A. Proceed west for 300m taking the right fork when road splits. Continue up this for 1.3 km passing through a gate. The paved access road eventually comes to a T-junction at W109 779 B. Turn south and continue for a few hundred metres until road forks. Take the right fork up along the edge of the forestry, which eventually terminates at a large pylon, at elevation roughly 480m. Follow the line of the electricity poles up through the woods for 200m, (through long rushes) emerging at a power station. Turn west and follow the fence and then the poles of a dilapidated fence for 800m, which lead all the way to the summit - a nondescript heathery bump and is marked only by an old fence post. 2.5 hours car to car.
