Access via windfarm
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  29 May 2023
One approach - and probably the easiest - is via Tullynamoyle Windfarm. There is parking for multiple cars at G90716 30170 starA, although the road up to here is just barely driveable and care is needed. Continue NE up road for about 400m and pass a barrier into windfarm proper. After this, basically stick to main windfarm road all the way up to T10, the final windmill, then turn NE, cut through a thin line of trees at G92577 31429 starB, taking you onto open hillside. Continue NE across a grassy area and then ascend into more heathery/rocky terrain with some interesting geological formations. The summit is marked by a trig pillar. Up and down takes roughly 2 hours. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/625/comment/5384/
