Cooneen, the big sister of Ballincurra and Knockadigeen
by YoungJohn  26 Apr 2010
Friday 16th April 2010. On this sunny dry yet cool spring day I fanagled my long suffering friend to join me on a trek up Cooneen. It is the largest of the three sister mountains, Knockadigeen, Ballincurra and Cooneen. We had trekked there before but the summit eluded us, we decided to go for the summit via the old forestry 'road' up by the mast. The going was tough initially as the hill is steep to begin with but we persevered. We followed a tractor route through a grass field before the boggy heather section between the spruce and the pines passing a frog spawn filled pond enroute. We firstly tried to go through the bog but my friend let me risk wet feet as he sensibly headed up along the pines. We met at the 'fence' without wires to find a deer track leading to the summit. The cairn was a welcome seat where we marvelled, despite the haze, at the grande views all about as we devoured our ciabatta's. Keeper standing guard over the Silvermines, Mauher in the near distance while away to the right overlooking Lough Derg was Tountinna in the Arra's. To the north east was the proud peak of Knockanora with Gortagarry (the Lock) blocking a clear view of the Devilsbit, Benduff was visible as were the two nearby sister mountains of Ballincurra and Knockadigeen. No doubt about it we should have listened to Jackill! We risked the quick steep descent to the loggers route on the southern slopes of Cooneen and followed the road back to our car parked at the forestry entrance which is just to the left, in off the road, as one heads uphill from the picturesque village of Templederry where the locals appear to have respected our ancestors ringforts, cairns and castles. Our legs did recover but were well tested on the descent. A fine mountain scarred but still standing sentry like before the Silvermines. A local townland on the western side of the mountain Foilnamuca is probably Aill n muca or cliff of the pigs. Yes Friday the 16th April 2010 was a good one.
