The first or last major summit (depending on your route) on the Cummeengeera Horseshoe walk above Rabach's Glen near Lauragh. The ascent/descent on the east side is a steep grassy ridge which can be wet, steep sides on the north face afford amazing views of the whole glen below and the hanging valley, lake and Tooth Mountain opposite to the north.

The photo of the twin summits of Lackabane is taken from Coomacloghane. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/268/comment/936/
