Short Summary created by aidand, jackill  24 Nov 2014
This hill is known locally as Lanigan's Tower. Many years ago a large stone tower stood on the summit. This tower was erected by the local landlord. Only the base of it remains today. There is plenty of parking at R984 735 starA. You can follow the forest roads towards the summit. O.S. sheet 59 has the details.

For a quicker route, park at a muddy forest and field entrance at S01748 71417 starB room only for one car, however you can also park on the roadside nearby. Go through the gate and follow the boggy track into the forest. At the first junction go right and follow the track all the way to a clearing ,S01331 71186 starC, near the summit. Head west through a gap in the trees,then steeply uphill to the summit trig pillar.Excellent views in all directions await. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/677/comment/5436/
