Short Summary created by paddyhillsbagger, jackill  6 Jun 2012
Park at a small field entrance at R94525 53427 starA on the narrow roadside where there was room for only one car.Walk back up the road towards Hollyford and cross the first gate to your right.
Be aware this is farmland so access may not always be possible so if you can ask the farmer.
Follow the fence/ditch on the left uphill, initially next to a tree lined stream, crossing two fences and a farm track to the summit which is marked by a few stones next to a wire fence.
An alternative start point is R955 542 starB where there is ample parking by an abandoned house as oldsoldier mentions. From here it is a short walk up a rough track, a grassy pathway and across a field heading for a large wind turbine which is part of Glenough Windfarm which officially opens in June 2012. The actual summit is a short walk behind the turbine by a clump of trees. Linkback:

I agree with jackill's comments on this hidden, magnificent, wonderland that is the Slieve Felim hills. Yesterday I took my mother who is now in her 80's for a drive up the hill road from Cappawhite to Hollyford and then up to Glenpadden where she was born. Almost blind now she knew every twist and turn on the road up from Hollyford, who lived where and what was down every boreen. When we got to where her home once stood, all we found was a pile of stones being reclamed by nature. But I found a lot more, I finally realized where I got my love of walking from, she was sitting beside me. She walked to school, she walked to mass, she walked to Hollyford or Cappawhite because thats what they did. We sat for a while and she told me of the children down the road she and her brothers and sisters went to school with and how they would put a stone on the bridge if thay were early and gone on, if there was no stone they would wait for each other, the very first Mobile Stone. We made our way back to Hollyford down the narrow road, she told me to "take care as the traffic was brutal on Sunday evening in the village", then she laughed out loud as if to say "got you" .
As we walk all over this island of ours lets take the time to talk to people we meet along the way, we might find out where we have all come from. Thanks mother. Linkback:

These are indeed surprising small hills of the Slieve Felim rising above the Tipperary plains under explored and under appreciated, there is nothing dramatic or magnificent about them but rather they are more local, more familiar and all the more interesting for it. An abundance of twisty little roads that degenerate to rutted medieval tracks tumbling over narrow passes into deep, dark unexpected valleys. You can feel the time under your boots as you tramp the tracks of drovers and rapparees, saints and heroes. After passing through the sleepy village of Hollyford, once a major crossing point for the Slieve Felims used by O'Sullivan Beare, Red Hugh O'Donnell and Patrick Sarsfield, I parked my cart at a small field entrance at R94525 53427 starA and began my ramble over Lackenacreena, Glenaneagh, Ring hill and Knockbane. I crossed the road and over a gate across tilled fields to the summit of Lackenacreena and from there to points beyond Linkback:

Tues 9 Feb 2010. I set out from Thurles for a pleasant stroll in my local hills. I parked my car in a field gateway at the junction of three roads at R 95725 54220 starC. Parking here for one car, two at a push. I went left from here and followed the laneway to the saddle on the hill between Lackenacreena and Glenough Upper. A local informed me this was the best way to get to the top of the ridge. I could have kept left at this junction and parked at a disused house at the end of the lane. I was expecting a gentle walk in farmland and forestry, fortuately a wind farm is being erected at this time so a road exist from the car parking spot to the summit of Ring Hill via Lackenacreena, over to the mast for weather on Glenaneagh, down and up onto Ring Hill A magnificient road and will be of great benefit to all walkers in the future. Almost at the summit of ring hill there is a two storey house as part of the transformation of the power. I turned right as I approached the workings and headed back down to join the road I came in on near where I parked my car. Linkback:
