Route taking in Croaghanmoira N Top and the two Slieve Maan tops from parking at a forerst entrance on the Wicklow Way - T087 876.
Though I had logged Slieve Maan before, I always had a niggle about it, as I visited before becoming aware that the position of the summit was disputed between the North and South tops, both marked 550m on the OS. That dispute had been resolved by Jackill in favour of the southern top but although I knew I had reached a top, I had no track, and for the life of me, could not remember which one. The only was to lay the hare was to revisit and take in both tops.
As Croaghanmoira N Top is now a likely Arderin Beg, and Slieve Maan North Top is now listed (but probably under the prominence of 15m to qualify as an Arderin Beg), a visit to Croaghnmoira N was easily extended to take in the 2 Slieve Maan tops.
