Caherbarnagh area access problems.
Thanks redape99 for taking the trouble to inform the hillwalking community about the issue on Stoukeen. Stoukeen is a minor OS named summit, not on MV lists, between Curracahill and Caherbarnagh. As it happens I did a circuit in the area for the first time earlier this year. This didn't include Curracahill which it now looks like it may be hard to get up. Thanks also for putting warnings into the pages for other nearby summits.

Knowing where there have been difficulties generally allows different approaches to be tried. Over time some prominent access issues have fizzled out. In this case there seems to have been a specific incident of robbery that provoked the problem. Perhaps local people will realise that whatever the cause of the robbery it is highly unlikely to have been hillwalkers. When we were there in Feb there was no mention of such an issue when we talked to locals on the laneway up Stoukeen.

MV would be grateful for further information about getting onto the hills there. For example is it still possible to get onto Caherbarnagh from the west? Are there any other ways up Curracahill?
