truly a challenge worth taking

Follow Jackills directions and you can park in peace. I climbed Monabrack first, via the mobile home, then along the shoulder to Carrignabinnia before heading uphill to Lyracappul. Blessed with a dry but hazy day I took shelter from the cold mountain breeze at the Cairn.
The climb is well worth the hardship, wide views - panoramic descibes it best. I could hear tractors at work in the quarry below and could see a farmer speading slurry about 2,000ft below. Luckily the smell didn't travel as well as the sound!
Way in the distance Woodcock Hill which overlooks Limerick City.
A grey sliver I took to be Lough Derg while way to the south and west the High Peaks of Kerry. Eastern Munster was plain to be seen. Knockmealdowns, Comeraghs and the Blackwater valley. I longed to step on towards Temple Hill but time was against me....perhaps a return visit will capture the two of them! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/29/comment/6281/
