Forestry & Wind Farm tracks ease the ascent.

There is just room to park one vehicle and not block the junction at W 121 774 G. Otherwise park at the spot in John Desmonds Post.

Go through an electric gate (the type designed to keep cattle in - two plastic poles) and follow the track through a second one of these type of gates. Follow the track up as per John Desmonds description, instead of leaving the track at W 109 779 B, I continued up hill on the track (I didn't notice any sign though) Before turning right along a newish looking track heading towards the edge of the forest, this track exited the forest at W 103 776 H onto a newly bulldozed track through the peat, which ran up hill along the forest ( nice and peaty by the way !). I followed this till it ended just before pt 498 and its mast. Followed a rotten fence out towards the summit, beware here as there is some deep mire to avoid. Crossed the fence and reached the summit.

I decided to carry on to Coomagearlahy W Top, following the fence for most of the way there, the forestry on the other-side of the fence is being cleared now. This lets you see the shear scale of the Wind farm being developed here. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/444/comment/6571/
