(see Crockbrack and Meenard for first parts of this circuit). From summit of Meenard follow the ever present fenceline and drop down 300ft before the short climb to the summit of Mullaghaneany through the peat hags. The summit is marked by the joining of fencelines and the views as outlined on Meenard were perfect with clear air from the north. Taking in Oughtmore would have been a natural finish to the circuit but as was nearly dark i decided to follow fenceline northeast to the B40 running through Banagher Forest. With snow on the ground and a clear night sky there were even shadows on the ground, though with no torch I had to take it very easy and did find the going very difficult. This area is covered by three different OS maps so is a bit of a hassle. On reaching the road turn right (east) and follow as it drops down out of the hills, the road was covered in frozen snow and ice and again was difficult underfoot. With the clear night sky and isolation of walking along the road for 3 miles I had a fantastic experience with the parallel electricity pylons buzzing away to the side. At grid 738984 D turn left along the lane and left again to reach the carpark. ( 9 hours and 14 miles in all but could do quicker in better conditions and take in another 569m mountain). I have used the B40 through Banagher as a useful starting point for a number of climbs around Mullagheaney, Oughtmore and Meenard - there are several forest tracks which can be used as starting points, with parking and easy access onto the hills from a ready height.
