Hopping the gate in front of my car at R94525 53427 A I turned right up an old disused forestry entrance where I was confronted with the dirty side of old Ireland , abandoned rubbish and a wrecked car. I hit a new forest track and followed this to R94565 52881 B , a crossroads and then scooted up a firebreak to R94538 52826 C, turned right along an overgrown but passable track to R94603 52698 D and then up a rough gap covered in sedge grass to the summit trig pillar atop a mossy cairn. The day wasn’t the best at this stage so no views to speak of, only the promise of the fault scalp of Slievenamuck and the towering Galtys beyond Aherlow that would fill the southern horizon on a clear day Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/678/comment/3565/
