Great walking in the area with the great weather last weekend! We started up the road/track from the farmyard in Gloragh then cut off east to the base of Eagles Lough, up the LHS of the waterfall & kept left of Lough Coomanassig heading straight out the back of the coom before swinging west then south-west to the flatish summit marked by a stone pyramid (man made!). Descended via the farmers road which isn't far WNW from the summit.

PS - mountain known locally as Coomanassig or Coomassig in case you're looking for directions from Sneem. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/147/comment/3802/
