A Top in Awe of its Neighbours
by sandman  3 Jun 2013
An insignificant top crowned with a natural rock summit on the way either to or from Glennamong but with fantastic views. I first climbed Tirkslieve parking on a forest road so well described by Wicklore but at an earlier lay-by at F9496902334 starA thus not having to ford the river and also you will be rewarded with better underfoot conditions.

Long trek to summit
by Fergalh  9 Jan 2023
Parked at 968055 starB at the car park and proceeded along the Bangor trail until i reached a point around 954060 starC. From there I zigzaged my way up until i reached the rock strewn summit. Great views in all directions and I than continued onto Glenamong itself and back down to the small shelter below Nephin Beg and finally back along the Bangor trail to the starting point.
