Wet trek to summit
by Fergalh  10 Apr 2021
Park to south east at bend in road (A543) where there is remains of old quarry and beginning of track. Head north east up road to gate. Cross into boggy tussocky ground and the slog west begins. A small rise leads to ridge and eventually you reach the rocky unmarked summit Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B14399/comment/22847/
