Swim for it!
Short Summary created by jackill  19 Feb 2011
Park at W15048 79413 A in a gap just off the main road, room for 2 cars,hop the gate and follow the forest track uphill until it stops.Do not try to cross the obvious clearing, it is akin to the Irish sea for wetness. Walk through the trees uphill,passing many large boulders, as far as you can. you'll come to open ground and then cross the bog to the summit near the forestry corner. This is very wet ground so come prepared. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/710/comment/5469/
