Statement from MI re access.
by simon3  1 Dec 2011
Following the access comments of redape99 MV passed on details of the issue to Mountaineering Ireland for the purposes of keeping other hillwalking interests informed. MI investigated the issue and have issued a statement as below which is useful in that it specifies more exactly where the problem is.

The good news is that Caherbarnagh, Caherbarnagh NW and other neighbouring summits Curracahill and Ballyvouskill can all be reached without any known access difficulties.

Stoukeen ridge and Duhallow Way
Mountaineering Ireland has been advised that the owners of a mountain area south west of Millstreet are no longer allowing access to their land. The closure affects a large area to the east of the summit of Caherbarnagh, taking in Lough Gortavehy, Coomacheo, Stoukeen and the ridge to the south east of Stoukeen as far as the broad saddle south of Kippagh Lough. Mountaineering Ireland has met with the landowners involved, but unfortunately could not achieve a resolution to the issue at this time.
Walkers should also note that the Duhallow Way in the Gortavehy area has been re-routed and no longer follows the line that is marked on Sheet 79 from the Ordnance Survey’s Discovery Series mapping. This will be updated on the third edition of Sheet 79 which is due out at the end of 2011. Marker posts are in place along the revised route.
