A short but enjoyable stroll.
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  9 Jul 2010
Approach from the B193 just W of Killea at C372147 A. Follow the minor road, signed L2013, NNE for approximately 2km to C3767716800 B. From here a gated access road for a communications mast can be followed NE until it levels out and swings right some 100 metres from the mast. Cross a gate on the left and follow a good grassy surface around right to a fence just before and below a small but prominent raised area with a trig pillar C3855916981 C. From here walk N across the heathery flat summit area for approximately 100 metres to the unmarked MV listed high point which is contained within the bounds of a small ring contour shown on the OS map. Return by way of ascent. An easy walk which can be completed within 30 minutes. The nearby unlisted hill of Greenan Mountain is well worth visiting to see the large and ancient Cashel C367198 D,, the Grianan of Aileach, once the seat of the O'Neills, kings of Ulster. This is accessable by car. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/992/comment/5751/
