Another quick ascent.

Parked at the end of the lane, mentioned by gerrym, at around C448576 H. Climbed over the new looking fence on our left, and followed this east to another fence at around C451576 I, stepped over and turned immediately right and followed a track up hill. There are many tracks criss crossing this hillside, use them to gain height before striking up hill through the heather, to the summit and trig point. We startled a fox, as it was trying to sneak up on some sheep, just where we left the track.

As we approached the summit and its strange golf ball installation, a loud roll of thunder echoed all around us, so there was no hanging around to admire the views, just a quick return to the car. 50 min all in. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/970/comment/5909/
