There ain't no easy way

Park at 536 116 starA at end of narrow lane. Proceed along the beach until a suitable place to cross fence arises than the fun begins fences to be crossed, mud everywhere, gorse, brambles, waist high bracken and the odd bull or two. A zig zag direction around the back of the trees lead to a grassy summit with extensive views of the bay and the nearby beach. The trees that extend down to the beach is a virtual jungle and nearly impassible without a machete Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/5108/comment/23752/
