Reeks Ridge - trailtrekker
Doable in one outing, never mind the rain, but keep a good eye on the wind forecast.

Not sure whether your route ends at Caher, but don't forget Caher West Top as well.

Did that exact route a few months back, on a very good winter's day. Did it pretty much non stop, think it was 8/8.5 hours, but that was pretty much flying along. The slowest parts are along the 2 most exposed ridges, the Big Gun and Beenkeragh ridges, and then the out and back along Caher Ridge though that is less airy. If you don't go along the ridge proper in the Big Gun and stick to the path, you can do it in one outing, but again wind will be your enemy and if its windy then parts of that walk are very exposed whether you do it in one go or break it down. It is hard going to take in the 3 most famous ridges in the country in one outing, but good for the fitness!

It may not be as obviously dangerous as other stretches, but you should also be careful about descending west off Knockbrinnea, it's not a sheer drop but it's steep and grassy and on a wet day one slip and nothing will stop you until you hit the road. Have come down between the Hag's Teeth (nw of the Hag's Tooth as named here and everywhere) and you have to be very careful.
