Short Summary created by jackill  15 Jul 2012
Park at W11208 51773 A, a forest entrance with room for 5 cars.Cross the barrier on a good forest road and after 750 meters leave the road to climb a steep mud track that emerges from the trees after a while and eventually you will find yourself next to a telecoms enclosure. Go left and skirt the forest edge to meet the end of the original forest road. The summit is the rough high ground next to the road.Return by the longer forest road.

Summit where art thou?
by thomas_g  10 Aug 2012
Following Jackills instructions (I seem to be saying that a lot) I missed the path at 450m, but picked up one at 1.3 km, I'm guessing it joins up with the track at 450m. When you reach the forest road, turn left to reach the telecoms enclosure mentioned by Jackill.
I found an interesting platform not too far from the telecoms enclosure, my initial thought was that the locals were presenting some medals, but when the bog water came in over the top of my boots as I walked underneath, I realised its purpose immediately.
The summit if it's on the earth bank is best reached from the very end of the forest road rather than walking the length of the bank, it's the highest point, but not what's shown on the OSI map, so I wonder if it's man made and thus doesn't count. Just in case I went just inside the treeline off the end of the forest road which seems to be the point indicated on the OSI maps. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/958/comment/14752/

Follow forest road which is along line of disused West Cork railway line for approx. 1.5km until the path then sweeps uphill to eventually reach an enclosed Vodafone telecom mast. Keeping mast enclosure to you right proceed ENE for approx 100 metres along narrow gravel path to end of forest and then turn sharp right, keeping forest area on your right Follow rough forest road to summit in recently cleared forest ground at W21017 48477 C.
