One stop on an excellent circular walk
Short Summary created by jackill,  25 Jan 2015
This mountain can be climbed by taking the second road to your left on the Dublin side of Kilbeheny where there is a signpost marked "Galtycastle".
Follow this minor road uphill ignoring the turn-off to the right (also signposted Galtycastle) and taking the right hand fork at the Y junction after it.
After travelling a further 1.2 kms on this tarred road it turns 90 degrees to the left and downhill to a farmyard.
Park on the roadside at this turn R86912 19635 A (room for 3-4 cars) and you will notice a rough track in front of you on leading past a new house and up towards the hillside.
Follow this track past the house and an abandoned mobile home and hop the fence to your left to pick up a rough forestry track also running uphill.
After following the forestry track for a short distance it turns sharply downhill.
Cross the wire fence to your right and onto open hillside to reach the summit of Monabrack
Continue north to the Galty main ridge and a short detour to the east will bring you to the summit .A fine circuit can be had by taking in Lyracappul and the Knockaterriffs on the return leg Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/31/comment/4791/

The summit of Carrignabinnia is located about 200 metres North of the stone wall and path that runs East-West from Lyracappul to Slievecushnabinnia. There is no defined summit as such, more an area of high ground. The only feature near the summit is a small stone cairn just to the North, just before the ground drops off sharply.

This shot was taken from the col between Slievecushnabinnia and Carrignabinnia. Its basically a similar picture to mneary34's, but without snow. You can see the amazing shapes the river has cut in the valley between the two mountains. It was a surprise to see it. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to get a shot of all the valley, this will have to do. It's well worth having a look at. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/31/comment/2105/

In March 2005 doing a ridge walk along most of the Galtees as we had passed Slievecushnabinnia and were on the col heading west this view opened up of Carrignabinnia which shows the tremendous profile of the mountain. In contrast the green fields in the distance show the temperature variations between the respective levels. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/31/comment/1510/

Carrignabinnia is an easy and interesting continuation from Lyracappul. This photo shows the col between the two and the graceful Galty wall. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/31/comment/1283/
