Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, simon3, jackill  8 Dec 2022
From Cappaghwhite village turn north at R88828 47850 starA, passing the school on our right, then turn NNW at R89083 48286 starB and follow the road towards Cappawhite Wind Farm. The final 1km of this is now a broad, stony but very driveable new wind farm road that will take you to R89224 50926 starC. There is parking for about 7/8 cars here. Follow the track NE for 400m up to trig pillar.
As of 2011 there is a plaque next to the trig pillar to David Alan Addison who died nearby in a light aircraft crash. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/660/comment/5419/
