Fairly straightforward but with interesting geology
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  3 Mar 2023
Pass Gortalughany viewing point and park opposite a gate on right (parking for several cars at point H16473 29978 starA.) Cross the gate and continue NNW along track for about 1km to another gate. Cross this and continue on a rougher track that curves around the small, gorge-like Leggacurragh Valley. After that it’s more of a slog across rough ground covered in long grass. Thanks to the limestone nature of the terrain, the area is speckled with sinkholes, many of which have small trees growing from their base.
Rather than approaching the hill directly, by curving around to a more NW direction you should pick up a trail of sorts (perhaps a remnant of a quad bike track) that eventually turns into a narrow track running, on and off, all the way to the barbed wire fence just beneath the summit. The summit itself is marked only by a couple of heathery mounds and a small pool. Allow 1.45hr up and down. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/720/comment/5479/
