Congratulations to Galway Co Co or whosoever provided the small carpark. Mount Gable walking signs and style which greet you upon arrival at M072 539 A, as mentioned by bruno and Filhill. Lovely to find a welcome to the hills! Only downside is that it's a long trek across the boggy summit plateau to the trig point so keen baggers may wish to find a shorter route from the West.
