Not much to add. Basically followed route outlined by paddyhillsbagger. Parked the car just off the road on the N16 at
G720410 A A on the map. There's a gap in the ditch, hop over the fence and head up the field where you meet the track. Follow the track for a few kilometres, climbing a few fences, and it eventually takes you up out onto the plateau, all the while having great views of Ben Bulben plateau, Kings Mountain, Truskmore and Glencar opposite as well as Sligo Bay, Sligo Town and Knocknarea behind you. There is nothing marking the actual summit point though there is a small semblance of a cairn a few hundred metres west of the summit. From there you can view to the west the nearby summit of Craughans and south west the various summits of Keelogyboy mountains Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/612/comment/22805/
