Most Westerly Bloomer!
Short Summary created by simon3, Geo,  11 Feb 2016
Start at laneway/Public road intersection at S2052694089 A, Parking here on roadside or further up the laneway in the woodland at the T-junction at the 310m contour. From here continue N up a narrow track thru the trees onto the moorland at c.500m from the summit. The remaining walk to the summit is over rough heathery ground with no obvious tracks, and slow going. At the summit there is an old fence-line following the county bounds between Laois/Offaly and a faint track there appears going NE to Farbreague. Half hour from road to summit.
