From the R471 Sixmilebridge to Cloonlara road it is possible to drive north from a place marked as Oatfield (R54266727 D). The road worsens as you ascend, becoming potholed though as of 2009 still passable in an ordinary car. Park at R5237269303 A and then walk east on tracks around 1100m to a point where a number of tracks meet. Marvel or at least mutter darkly at the number of remains of car burnings here - I counted 6 without trying; apart from Clermont Carn, I've never seen anything like it. There are at least two ram wrecked forest gates of the heavy steel variety. Head NE, leaving the road following a boggy old wall, aiming for R 53607 69881 B from where it is possible to walk SW on a better-than-nothing path to the trig pillar.

Incidentally you may have been tempted when coming from the R471 to go north to the stretch of road near the the summit by driving via R54816824 C - this road isn't passablefrom the south.

What delights await you on the summit? Well there's views east to the Slieve Bernaghs around 10k away. To the west there is this view of the river Fergus. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/949/comment/4218/
