Track all the way.

There’s an easier way to the summit than described by others. Park a car at the farm gate just east of the double gates at R94525 53427 starA. Walk up the track to a junction and then follow the sign heading right marked ‘’exit’’. Follow this for 400m until the trees end, then take the track left for Turbine 6 which is 100m in front. The summit trig is over the wooden fence on the right about 100m from the turbine. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/678/comment/23615/
