Easy hill from its neighbour.

I did this as part of a double bag with Glenenagh (see my comment there for approach.) From Glenenagh proceeded down grassy slope past turbine, easily ducked under a solitary, possibly electrified, wire and then simply followed the wind farm track NE and then SE all the way to the summit area some 2km away. I located the high point to the left of the turbine area, up another track, where there is a pile of stones on top of an earthen bank (although my GPS indicated that it was on the other side of the track). 2 hours to do both hills.
