You can also climb Cummeen from the Glenteenassig road at the point where the small filter station is situated where the water pipe from Lake Acumeen comes down to the road. Climb up the rough hillside to the lake and then work you way around the shoulder to the summit. The filter station is on the left not far after the last farm. Sorry I have no Kerry map available to give the GR. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/524/comment/3258/
