Updated Summary:
Nondescript hill
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  Fri 23 Sep
Parking for 2 cars next to entrance to Gruig Windfarm at D13282 21721 starA. There is a farm gate adjacent to the parking spot. Cross this and proceed SE through a gently sloping field of long grass & heather, making it a bit of a slog, then along the top of a high ditch for about 300m, which has a narrow trail that makes walking a little easier. The hill steepens a bit at D13537 21191 starB. When ditch ends proceed directly SW for about 600m to the flattish summit. There is a moss-covered, stone marker of sorts next to a fence at the summit. A pole shoved into the turf next to it helps identify the spot. About 40 minutes to top. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/587/comment/5346/
