On Wednesday 3rd September a group of 9 walkers climbed Mullaghcarn. The walk had a place-names theme and was part of the programme of the Peadar Joe Haughey Summer School, taking place over 3 days. After torrential rain on Tuesday and Wednesday morning, the skies cleared and the views were remarkably good. We began our walk from the board marking the start of the Cairn Sunday route situated in Lenagh townland, on the NE side of the mountain. Cairn Sunday is the last Sunday in July, and the old tradition of climbing Mullaghcarn on this day has recently been revived. The first hour of walking was through deep heather, but once we reached the ridge, there was a small but clear path which speeded our progress to the summit. From here we were able to see not only the Sperrins, but also Lough Neagh, Lough Erne, Errigal, Muckish, Slieve Donard and Ben Wiskin, which means our view more or less covered the whole width of the country. We made much faster progress on the descent, coming down the forest road on the NW side through the forest, meeting the main road at the pass between Gortin and Omagh (255m spot height). From here we were given a lift back to the cars at the starting point. The whole walk took 3½ hrs, though a good ½hr of this was taken up with stops for place-name discussion on the way up.
