A boggy but short ascent route
Short Summary created by simon3, jackill  21 May 2017
Go to the forest entrance at S22452 09704 A. there is room here for a few cars.
Walk down the forest track, crossing a ford and follow the track until you can see open ground.
Walk south along the edge of the forest and then uphill to the summit.

Three curious rusting milk churns stand guard nearby to 3 cairns. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/821/comment/5580/
