Doan stop. (Expand pics)
Soupie. Some ingredients.
Soupie, you will go far: you have the brains to know that none of this is easy and also the greatest and most under-practised of all human skills: humility. As each hillwalking day goes by, however, this humility will peel away like onion skins (prepare for the tears) until you are at the heart of the fruit and Bearnagh you will whisper over like a Mistral. I could suggest some easy-going low level walks, but in truth this will not get you up Bearnagh. The work rate at your level, needs must be enormous, but will pay off as early as the end of the season. Furthermore a couple of good small tops will encourage you to go get more. 1. Chimney Rock. Advance from Donard carpark, the Glen River and the Saddle (ie the gap between Donard and Commedagh) and over the stile. Drop down left, South and East to the Brandy Pad track (which traverses from Hare’s Gap to Donard Bog), follow your nose until you reach the wall and a stile - left is Donard and at 1 o’clock is Chimney Rock. Follow a squelchy route south along the wall until level with Chimney Rock top. Saunter whistling to her delicious tops and view breathtaking panoramas of .... everywhere. 2. Doan. Come at her by your trusty Trassey Track route, except at the foot of Hare’s Gap, hang right - ie West past the old quarry. Onward until you reach the stile at the gap between Bearnagh and Meelmore. This can be a grind for the weak of experience, but eases off thereafter. Over the stile and at 11 o’clock is Doan. Ascend thereafter by a wide track running off Slieve Loughshannagh. Both these tops, return by the same routes. See other moutainviews comments. Enjoy.

This summit, at least on the approach from Glenbeg Lough, is characterised by the number of false summits that emerge as you gain height.
