From Balbane Hill IG69550 82882 there is a short drop to the windfarm service road which provides easy walking for part of the distance to the target mountain. Be careful as you approach the road as the ground immediately to it's side has not settled yet and you're likely to sink in well above the ankles. Simply follow the road up to the last windturbine and then take the relatively short drop onto marshy ground before the ascent (damp at first) to the undefined summit area. There are a number of raised areas vying for the honour of summit. Picture shows the one the GPS favours (taken a short distance away on descent north towards Crow River). A word to the wise I took a bearing directly to what appeared on the map to be a track running along the outer edge of the forest west of Crowbane IG 677 841 starA with a view to taking it down to the Carrick to Adara road. Needless to say there was no track and it was quite wet near the fence. If following this route I'd be inclined to maintain a little height for as long as possible.

With a windfarm,6 turbines, now built between Mulnanaff and Balbane Hill access to Mulnanaff is much easier now. Parking available at forestry gate at G701 811 starB and a easy walk in. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/532/comment/20809/
