No longer with a "mystical mossy end" - the trees have been clear felled.
The trig pillar is still a little elusive though as several tree stumps masquerade as the trig pillar.
Parked at S65911 43051 E at an open area just beyond an open forest barrier and followed a good wide gravelled track which zig zagged up the hill.
At around S 65264 43444 B I left the gravelled track and headed west along a muddy path as far as S 65163 43399 C before heading NNW to the trig pillar which my GPS, on a misty day, said was at S 65106 43469 F..
Hard to discern the actual trig pillar among the tree stumps.
The road in to the start point (from S66483 43295 G) is very rough now, probably chewed up by the lorries carrying the felled timber out. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/882/comment/20660/
