An undemanding hill this certainly is, we called here, well you cannot really claim to climb it, on the way home from Slieve Beagh & Slieve Beaghs' East Top. There is one word of warning though, the local youths appear to use the summit road and the car park as a racetrack / skid pan. I wouldn't recommend leaving a car anywhere on this short approach road, but drive right up to the car park and then walk back to the trig point and the slight rise just behind (see Harry Goodman's picture above). If you park over the apex in the car park you can at least claim you walked up hill to the summit, even if it is no more than a 6-7 metre height gain.

Whilst we were there a group of cars had gathered, when one had suddenly started "doughnuting" at high speed in the car park, whilst probable fun for those in the car the consequences of the driver losing control and ploughing into the other cars would be horrendous. The marks on the road & car park would indicate that this a regular occurrence & the fact they had containers of petrol and trailers with them, seemed to imply it was a planned event and venue.
