Slieve Aghkerane comes from 'A New Map of Ireland' by Daniel Beaufort 1797 which is, in this area based on MacKenzie's sea charts of 1776. (Barry Dalby) It was the tradition for local children to gather bilberries on the mountain, and also another kind of small white berry called caora aitinn, which were bottled in whikey, buried, and kept as remedies for ailments. This took place on the last Sunday of July, known locally as Garlic Sunday (apparently a corruption of 'garland') or Domhnach Chrom Dubh [MacNeill, 191-92]. Previously Cullydoo in MV.   Slieve Aghkerane is the 441st highest place in Ireland. Slieve Aghkerane is the second most easterly summit in the Achill/Corraun area.

Mist, mist and more mist!
by Harry Goodman  26 Oct 2011
Climbed Corraun Hill East Top on Wed 12 Oct 2011 as part of a round that also included Corraun Hill (See my comments on Corraun Hill for first part of the route). From the broad saddle (Pt 421) we went E very gently uphill to a cairn at L7683995608 D D D. We then took a slight change of direction and went NE over increasingly stoney ground, past a series of cairns, to the summit cairn at L7773796118 E. Continuing thick mist ensured we had no views and made for a sharp turnaround back down SW to the cairn at L7683995608 D D D where we stopped for lunch. As we sat the mist started to lift and quite soon we had views across SW to Achill Beg and NW across the Sound. Before continuing down we went about 200m NW across the hillside to get a view down to the corries and small loughs below the N face of the Plateau (see photo). Although the mist persisted on the tops we were very pleased to have had an opportunity to see for ourselves some of the delights this hill has to offer for a future visit. From L7683995608 D D D we went SW down the long but gentle slope, over varied ground conditions, to the track at L751 948 F which we then followed down to the road and back to the start.
