The summit is located in the townland of Aghamore. The Discoverer Map shows the name Tullybrack to the NW and Mulderg to the SE. It is not clear which applies to this hill, if either, but the former has been chosen as it is slightly nearer. The hill Sliabh Dá Chon, mentioned in the Annals of the Four Masters, is a lower point in these uplands to the NW. Note that there is also a townland of Tullybrack or Ora More nearby, but this is lower down near Belcoo. Has been called Reyfad.   Tullybrack is the second highest hill in the Fermanagh/S Tyrone area and the 979th highest in Ireland.

Just off the minor Boho to Mullylusty road, a track which is sign posted for the Giants Grave leads to a small area to park in, by a gate at 092430 H. if the gate is open there is further parking area, large enough for several cars just through the gate on the left, by a track junction.

From here, turn left (west) and walk several km to another track junction at 063443 I, turning right here, shortly passing another track on your right, continue to the next junction by the Tullyscallen name on the map. Continue straight ahead and follow the track round a sharp right hand bend to another junction, this time taking the left hand branch, this junction when first arrived at doesn't seem to match the map, but it is the correct one. Follow this track to where it ends on the map at 092457 J (by the 386 height number on the map), the track continues on, but it is clear where the main track ends as the route starts to become over grown.

Look to your left and you should beside a fire break, follow this for about 250-290 metres and the summit should be clearly visible on your left, in an area of bog . The summit looks suspiciously like a buried Tomb, perhaps not surprisingly, given the amount of such sites in this area. The ground further west from the spot height, which looks higher, isn't. We visited & measured both by altimeter and the area at the spot height was the clear winner.

Return is by the way of ascent, however a visit to the double court tomb is a worthwhile objective and together with the summit makes a nice 11 mile stretch for the legs. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/856/comment/4323/
