I was looking for a quick way up this hill as I only wanted to bag it. I headed on the R756 from Hollywood and took the turn right onto the third class road. At approximately N 953 038 A I turned right onto an uphill track. It was just wide enough for the car and twisted up to a level area big enough for a few cars. I got the sense no one had been here for years. Walking back down the track for 20 metres I turned right and walked up through tall grass and over an embankment. I found myself on an old track from logging or something. It was quite churned up but easily negotiable and dry. A few minutes brought me to the unofficial relay station mentioned by csd before. It looked like a weather station to me. The summit proper is over a fence. padodes and csd's posted photos show the summit quite well. However I think the lonely Teddy on the bronze chair deserves more attention. My photo shows his lonely vigil looking over the lowlands below. The name Dan Clancy is clearly visible engraved into the top of the chair and a man's silver ring was added into the chair during construction. This can be seen at the bottom of one of the four rear bars. I got an incredibly sad and nostalgic feeling when I saw the bear, as I thought about him sitting there day after day, season after season presumably in memory of Dan Clancy. If it is a memorial I think it is lovely but I wish Teddy had a companion for company. He even looked like he had been treated with waterproofing or something and was bone dry.
Before heading down I sat in the chair (I didn't squash Teddy) and it was surprisingly comfortable! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/747/comment/3212/

Slievecorragh (N948 041 B) just about makes it into the 400m league, but it does have a few things going for it. For one thing, the view to the NE, across the serpentine Blessington Lake, coiled around the surrounding hills, is well worth the short climb. And if you're tired, then there's a bronze chair fixed to the ground (still with a bedraggled teddybear) that will allow you to contemplate at your leisure the broad plain to the west. The surprisingly big cairn is interesting because it has a rectangular shape. That leaves me thinking it may have been transformed at some time into a little chapel or shrine. There is a strong connection between St Kevin and nearby Hollywood (Cillin Chaomhin), with its statue of the saint overlooking the village and even its own 'Kevin's Bed'. The quickest way to get to the top is, in fact, from Hollywood. If you try taking in Church Mountain after Slievecorragh, or vice versa, it turns out a lot less easy that a look at the map might suggest. The thick forest on the northern flank of Church obliges one to skirt around by the wet valley between Church and Corriebracks. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/747/comment/2993/

Its not so much the height of the hill as the amount of ascent. Took me 40 minutes to get to the summit of 817M Tonelagee from the high up Wicklow Gap without pause. Took just as long to get to the top of this 400m hill from Hollywood village. And it was just as strenuoues. The other commentators have this one well sussed. I'd just mention to stay by that fence on your left. Its tempting to head right on to higher ground when it looks like you might be near the summit, but its a bit further on and you get held up wading through that heather. The ground on the way up is a bit tricky in places with the odd hole that could swallow an ankle so be careful. Nice place to be late on a sunny evening.

While the more energetic may fashion something of a circuit incorporating Slievecorragh and Church Mountain, perhaps, I was content with the bagger's dash. Parking at the gate at N94257 03703 C, I trotted the 620 metres to the summit. Not very taxing, but I was glad I was driving a 15-year-old 4x4 and not a shiny new BMW. The road shown looping around the south of Slievecorragh is very narrow and probably hasn't ever seen a hedge cutter. The summit area of Slievecorragh turned out to be surprisingly interesting: a teddybear sitting on a chair, the ruins shown in the photo, and some sort of unofficial microwave radio relay station competing for our attention. Some nice views, but the cloud was closing in so poor light made for hit-and-miss photography. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/747/comment/2904/

Quick trip to visit Teddy
by EefaBee  17 Apr 2012
New to hill walking (since February 2012), I've been eager to visit Teddy since I first read about him on these pages. We approached the hill from above Hollywood (point C). There is a parking symbol on the East West map but the farmer there ousted us despite our friendly and polite inquiry. We parked at the road side instead.

We walked to the end of the forest trail, turning right at the forest edge and followed the peat and rock path west and upwards. A quick ascent, we didn't hang around long because of high winds. The cairn is smaller than the one on Church. I grew up locally and it brought a lump to my throat to see Teddy sitting up there on his chair. A really beautiful and fitting tribute to a person who was obviously much loved by his family. Teddy got a quick pat on the head and then we returned to the path and continued westwards down the opposite side we approached. Again, a bit peaty and wet but a shorter route - 2.5km in total. You could do this and then take on Church (Slievegad) Mountain. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/747/comment/6770/

Picture: Wet windy but not so wild! Teddy
Hollywood lights
by eamonoc  21 Feb 2011
20/2/2011Arrived in Hollywood to climb Slievecorragh after, Saggart Hill and Carriglietrim. It had been wet and windy earlier in the day but conditions had improved slightly. I started from the Church, point D crossed road climbed gate headed for the Statue overlooking Hollywood ,this was erected by a local priest in 1914. Then headed uphill beside a fence through an open field, higher up this fence is quite high and a lot of it is newly erected, it might be prudent to climb over it after about 5mins uphill from the statue, where an old stone wall meets the fence at the top of the open field. Once past the steepest section of the hill a walk of about 5mins over rough boggy grounds leads one to the Top and to Teddy. Time taken 40mins Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/747/comment/6248/
