Follow the edge of Lough Nagarriva.

Access is best from the west (Barraboy) or east (Priests Leap). It's a pretty boggy rocky walk from either and be warned the going between this top and the edge of the main Barraboy ridge is fairly horrible rocky with lots of trees. A better route is via the edge of Lough Nagarriva.
Views are decent in all directions with Knockboy being particularly prominent. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/598/comment/14984/
