Track follows route advised by Fergalh on the Croghan summit page. Croghan Hill is a very isolated summit, an island in a sea of bog.
Parked at Community Centre to avoid risk of parking inappropriately in centre of village - this may be unnecessary. Area behind community centre appeared to be used for grazing. Walked south eastwards back to centre of village and took a left - followed road heading northwards.
Took unnecessary detour west at a gate - watch out for this as you can be fooled by signage - this leads to a commercial adventure centre (not in use on this day). Returned to road afetr realising mistake.
At end of road after a caravan you see a modern single storey bungalow with floor to ceiling glass - there is a pedestrian gate on the left which leads to a hardcore path, which subsequently turns onto a cattle track.
Cattle grazing on summit.
Returned by way of ascent.
An interesting oddity on the skyline south west of Croghan is the Tullamore Transmitter. It is located in the vicinity of N420 255. It is the tallest man-made structure in the Republic of Ireland. It rises 290m above ground level. It has a curious pencil profile from afar, presenting an incredible slenderness ratio. Apparently it may soon be dismantled as it has not been used since 2008.
The trig pillar on Croghan was recently replaced. It is a work of art, referencing geology, mythology and the Old Bog Man. That hasn't stopped some eejit scratching his name into it though.
