Running up that hill
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, jackill  8 Dec 2022
Park your car at the forest entrance R87571 52878 starA, room for 5 cars. Walk west along a forest track which narrows and enters more dense forest as it turns sharply south at approx. R85453 52650 starB. The trig pillar is over a low wire fence in a field next to the telcoms mast on the forest edge.
This track seems popular with runners as no less than 3 set off at the same time as me.
Since jackill's entry, a new track has been cut up through the forest. Starting at point A, continue on the track as far as R86660 52564 starC. The first part involves barely an ascent of 5m over 1km. Turn south here up a rough, steep track, gaining about 70m in height over 500m distance, to R86676 52205 starD where there is a crossroads of sorts. Turn right here (west) and continue along this track all the way to the mast, which is next to a grassy field that holds the trig. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/746/comment/5505/
