In a normal road car where the tarred road ends at C2342031143 starG in a 4+4 you can get to C2394030645 starH but if you have a farm tractor especially with a turf cutting attachment you can drive all the way to the summit . (Or you can walk) Turf cutting has taken place within a meter or two from the summit cairn . Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/891/comment/18129/
