Do you like a navigational challenge? Wait for some mist (probably not a long wait), visit Knocknagantee and then walk to Coomura Mtn. It's rough, confusing, boggy land with (as of 2005) lots of high and nasty barbed wire topped fencing. Usually in comments I don't give route hints since I think finding the way is part of the fun. But for this walk, even if you have a GPS, you should particularly study the map. On the Sheet 78 around where it says "Source of the River Inny" look at the contours. Ok that's the hint. It's around point "A" on the Google Earth visualisation. This picture however doesn't give anything remotely like the topographical detail that exists on the ground around point "A". It's quite unlike the usual smooth lip of a coum.

The summit of Coomura probably doesn't get more than a handful of visitors a year. It's nothing exciting -- there's a mini cairn. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/162/comment/1927/
