I Barrclashcame, I saw, I conquered.

Firstly, apologies for the excruciating pun in the title!
This northern outlier of the Sheefrys is a surprisingly tough haul from the road in Doolough where there are several places to park roadside, for instance L8248069761 B. It took a sweaty hour and 15 minutes up the relentlessly steep NW spur and it really doesn't level off until 50m from the summit.
From the summit there is a seldom-seen perspective of Croagh Patrick, behind Tangincartoor.
On the descent, I was able to bum-slide much of the way down - 30 seconds is about the maximum time per run, before heat friction reaches uncomfortable levels! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/312/comment/6302/
