Followed Kerry Way until it emerged from wood at 62811 65060 B where a rough track ascended NW towards Esknaloughoge.
Track descends into pool at one point and you may have to negotiate it very carefully to avoid wet feet.
Very steep ground between Esknaloughoge and Lough Sallagh which can be avoided by traversing east before heading north. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/756/comment/18660/
