2020 Update.
by Cobhclimber  21 Jul 2020
Forestry Entrance now is partially blocked by a trench/pit (2020). More parking further down on the approach road. Forest has grown up and the paths to the top are very overgrown and difficult to find.
. The top as per the map is completely overgrown but the still accessible look-out would seem to be at the same height. Done on a lovely sunny day. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/959/comment/20825/
