Arrived at Lackawees' summit via Maulin (see Maulin posting for details) and another fine view point it was. We returned to the col, and some soft ground, and traversed pt 579 again to V71449 51108 C, and descended by a small stream, swinging right into the col, then left going round a few ring contours & past a small lough to V72442 51161 D.

As pointed out by Jackill, the ground around the lough to the GPS Ref has some, well, water bed characteristics! Not a place you want to 'break on through to the other side' on. Climb up through the rock , on an easy slope, despite looking more rocky close up than it did from Maulin. And arrive at a splendid summit and view point.
