Bleantasour and Bleantasourmountain are townlands in the parish of Seskinan. Cnoc Bhléantas Odhar is given as the Irish form of the latter at logainm.ie. Most of the townland names containing the word "mountain" in this part of Co. Waterford refer not to summits but to areas of mountain pasture.   Bleantasour Mountain is the 939th highest place in Ireland.

Short Summary created by simon3, jackill  21 May 2017
Go to the forest entrance at S22452 09704 starA. 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/
