Second from the end
Short Summary created by jackill  29 Aug 2014
Park near the old hostel site at Ballydavid room for 2-3 cars,at the forestry entrance S01816 27948 A and walk uphill on a good forest track to to S02055 26681 B turn right and on to S01141 26901 C, cross up through the wire to the topmost track and follow that to S00790 26330 D and from there turn uphill to the summit of Slieveanard NE.
As you ascend look back down to the curious field of small rocks below you.
The summit is marked by a cairn, trig pillar and a shelter from the wind. On a clear day you have tremendous views of the Knockmealdowns, the Comeraghs, Slievenamon, the ridge of Slievenamuck and the Slieve Felims away across the plains of South Tipperary.
Carry on over rough ground to find the track at the forest edge at R99948 26236 E ,this track will take you past the trackside summit of Slievanard Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/666/comment/5425/
