Comeraghs for Conor
I'll have to start writing a book of instructions just for you.
Some seriously good routes are possible here though.
The Nire valley carpark S 277 128 will give you access to the bulk of the plateau from Knocksheegowna to Coumfea west.
A favourite circuit of mine follows the windy gap track from Nire valley, around the back of the Coum Iarthar loughs, up to Crottys, on to Carrignagower, then across the plateau taking all the Coumfeas and descending Coumfea west "by its nose"(v. steep) and back to the carpark.
Its about 6 hours all in and 23kms.
A shorter 12km is the ascent to Fauscoum skirting the edges of Counshingaun.
Start from Kilclooney wood S342 102 , directions to Fauscoum are as per short summary for same, descent is by completing a circuit of the lake back to the starting point.
Also possible from Nire Valley is the ascent of Knockanaffrin and knocksheegowna, return by the same route.
All of these contradict the notion that the Comeraghs are just endless bog.
Drop me a line if you want company.
