The hardest part of the ascent of Slievekirk is finding somewhere to park on the narrow roads around it. The tracks marked on the map, leading towards the summit are pretty over grown, with the exception of the track to the masts. Despite this, what ever side you tackle it is not long before you reach the summit (gaiters are advised as some of the lower ground has been churned up by cattle). The only question being is the Trig Point on the actual summit? Ground to the NEE looks like it might be little higher! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/877/comment/4037/
