Summit with some views in overused area near track.
Short Summary created by simon3, jackill  27 Apr 2014
From Cappaghwhite village turn north at R88828 47850 starA, passing the school on our right, then turn NNW at R89083 48286 starB. This road is in bad condition but passable. It also serves as a forest access road. At around R89224 50926 starC you will have to park , room for 4 cars, and head NE uphill on a rough track to reach the trig which is on elevated ground right next to the track.
There appears to be an offroad assault course for quads near the summit.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/
