The sharp ridge which climbs to Mullaghnarakill between Coomaglaslaw and Coomnacronia provides one of the most challenging walks in the Glenbeigh Horseshoe area. The lower part of this ridge is known locally as Drom an Bháid or Bottom of the Boat, from its resemblance to an upturned keel.   Mullaghnarakill is the 169th highest summit in Ireland.

Stunning Ridge to the North East
Short Summary created by Onzy,  29 May 2014
Mullaghnarakill is normally experienced as a small rise on the main ridge of the Glenbeigh Horseshoe walk. However, to its north-east, a spectacular ridge rises to the summit between the coums of Coomnacronia and Coomaglaslaw. Though this ridge can be easily ascended, descent would be difficult. The ridge is narrow and exposed on both sides, however the footing is good and hands need to be used only at a couple of points. Views into both coums are spectacular.

A number of routes can take in Mullaghnarakill. The main Glenbeigh Horseshow taking in the entire ridge from Macklaun to Drung Hill is the most obvious. Perhaps the best starting point for the complete circuit is around V64812 86761 A - it should take 7-8 hours. Another possible circuit is that of Coomnacronia, which involves ascending the north-east ridge directly to Mullaghnarakill and taking in Been Hill, Beenmore and Drung Hill. A good starting point for this would be at the bridge at V62202 87010 B - about 4.5 hours. A further possibility from the same starting point would be to ascend directly to Keamconneragh and to make a circuit around both Coomaglaslaw and Coomnacronia taking in from Keamconneragh to Drung Hill - about 6 hours.
