Flattish heathery summit with some views.
Short Summary created by simon3  18 Oct 2011
One way of reaching this summit is from the south starting on the R497 at R91326123 A. Walk straight up the tarmac road heading NE until a gate which is at around 325m which is above most cultivation. Although the OSi map shows a track invitingly leading towards a forest and forest edge road, don't take this unless you are wearing wellies. Instead head directly towards higher ground and eventually to the summit. As of 2011 there is a high mast to the right near Reisk on the map which could well be a test for a future windfarm.
The unmarked top is flat and not very exciting though its position is good for views of much of the Shannons such as Mauherslieve, Keeper Hill, the Silvermines and the eastern Shannons Benduff-Devilsbit ridge. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/805/comment/5564/
