Fine hill with well defined summit.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  31 Aug 2015
There is a large car park on the N15 at H043 873 A. Walk a few metres up the road to the right and you will see a substantial track across the road. Follow this track for about 1.5km, (which incidentally, is driveable for about 1km, and has space to park.) until you reach point H035 884 B. Leave the track and cross flat, marshy ground for about 200m and then head directly up the hillside in a NW direction. The initial ascent is quite steep but eases at about 400m elevation. You will pass a cairn on a shoulder of the hill before reaching the rocky summit about 500m later, which is also marked by a cairn. Time from car to top, just over an hour. Extensive views of the Bluestacks range. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/464/comment/5223/
