Picture: Meenard Mt seen from Meenard West Top
Colin Murphy on Meenard Mtn W Top
by Colin Murphy 29 Oct 2008
From the parking spot at point A (H639 974), Meenard West Top is a brief, boggy hike about 1km NE. The photo taken at the 'summit' is actually of its bigger brother Meenard Mt to the west. Meenard West Top's summit is undefined and actually difficult to identify exactly - is it that peat hag or this one or that one over there? In fact the best thing I can say about it is that it's an easy walk with pleasant views. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/514/comment/3407/

Easier ascent.
by hivisibility 6 Oct 2015
For an easier ascent from the parking space at point A (H639 974) turn right along the road and continue until you meet a timber gate shortly after on your right. Climb over and ascend slightly to the left over grass terrain. Much easier than trying to follow the fence from the cattle grid, dodging peat hags and knee high heather.
