Quick and easy ascent on an otherwise un-inviting day for hill walking
by three5four0  15 Aug 2010
Parked in the space mentioned by john desmond, for Carrigalougha and Mweelin, on a blustery and showery day.

Waked a short distance down the road and went through the gate at W143 716 C and followed an old track up hill. The track passes through a reedy area, where a keen eye will be needed to stay on it. At around W14858 71593 D, you reach a fence (on an old boundary), which is marked on the map. Turn left and follow this up hill to the summit area. The map shows the old wall / boundary clipping the summit height spot. In reality, there is higher ground either side, as pointed out by John desmond, which leads to some fence hoping to ascertain the highest point.
