Straight line to summit not recommended
by Fergalh  6 Nov 2020
Not easy to get to ! Parked at layby and walked to edge of forest. Made mistake of crossing straight to top. Ground boggy and difficult to cross, came back by hugging the edge of forest, Mixed ground conditions that way. Unmarked summit with cliffs nearby and great views Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B3539/comment/21258/
