Short Summary created by jackill  30 Jul 2012
Park on the Kerry side of the tunnel at about V901 605 A where there is room for a few cars on the roadside.
Walk down the road towards kerry looking for a grassy ramp on your left
Go up the grassy ramp to gain the ridge.
Head west along the ridge to the summit area crossing 3 fences on the way. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/486/comment/5245/
