Tea Fathers?
Short Summary created by thomas_g  10 May 2013
A featureless top with wonderful 360 degree views.
Best access is to park in the farmyard at V987 692 A (thanks Conor74), with permission from the very friendly farmer. A quick walk back up the road, over the style and follow the track: 15 minutes and you'll be on top.
(Be warned, conversations with the granny who lives at the farm will result in a cup of tea whether you want it or not: old style Irish hospitality). Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/655/comment/5414/
