Access via 'new' Duhallow Way
by shaunkelly  5 Aug 2011
I walked in this area on 16/07/11. In the light of Redtape's comment it appears the way I went may be the easiest to access this mountain. My map is OS79 second edition 2003 so there may be a newer more accurate map available. It appears the Duhallow Way has changed quite a bit since this map was printed seeminly because of the access issues mentioned by Redtape. The section of the DW shown between about 190886 C and 219993 D as far as I can make out is gone. There is now a sign from the road from about (no GPS!) 193892. Parking here fro one car. The sign pointed us up a freshly mowed lawn type area alongside a bungalow. Then there is another sign alongside a fence directing walkers up the field. I wasn't happy to so blatantly cross someones fence so knocking at the bungalow we were told by the farmer that we "had his permission to cross his land" Having crossed his land we joined the DW at about 192886 E. I would recommend that anyone using this route get the farmers permission.

We then walked past Lough Murtagh and ascended Caherbarnagh via Caherbarnagh NW Top (Glanaprehane) which is a pleasant walk with wonderful views to the North. We walked West after that to 143852 F and returned to the car along the road. It is worth noting that while I can't be sure, it did seem like the Western end of the DW is moved to the road.
