A stopover on the way to or from Caherbarnagh. Walked along the Duhallow Way
then up to Glanaprehane, to Caherbarnagh, then eastwards along the ridge. The views were excellent but the terrain is a little boggy. If two cars are available it would be possible to
walk along the whole ridge from Knocknabro to Claragh mountain and then down to Millstreet. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/157/comment/1463/
