On 3 May 2013 we parked at S8431156818 starF at start of the Kilbrannish Looped Walk and followed the waymarked trail (purple arrows) up a short stone and gravel path to meet the main track which we then followed anti-clockwise ENE (right). The direction posts were for the Kilbrannish Loop (purple) and the S Leinster Way. After about 1.5km the looped walk turned left (W) at S855575 starG but we continued on NE for about 200 metres to where the forest edge coming down from Greenoge met our path S8563657573 starB. Crossing the fence on our right and keeping the line of the forest to our left we walked up along a raised ditch, on a gentle slope, past some wind turbines. The top S8629257087 starH was about 900 metres along. Due to the mist we had limited views across to the long E ridge of Mt. Leinster, our objective for the next day. While we could have returned to the start by our outward route, we decided when we came back down to the track and along to where the Kilbrannish looped walk turned up W, that we would complete the loop and take in another MV listed top Croaghaun en route. (For details see my comments on Croaghaun). This gave us a walk of just under 8km completed in a couple of hours and added 2km to an out and back walk to Greenoge. It also served as a nice introduction to a week-end's walking in the Blackstairs. Linkback:
