From the minor cul-de-sac road to the SW. Parked about 400m S of the settlement at L8530 4820 A - this avoided the enclosed fields and gave access straight onto the open hillside initially heading NE before turning N on the steeper ground . It was 60 mins up and down. Views would be great but I had gales/rain and a cloudbase at 450m. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/828/comment/6533/
