Access from the south
by thomas_g  29 Jul 2012
There is a handy trailhead at Curraheen (S30609 15447 A) with plenty of parking. You can follow the well marked trail up to the gap and straight up the track to Carrignagower, a climb of 600m. The little bridges they provide make the trek through the sometimes boggy valley much more pleasant.
This ascent of Carrignagower can easily be extended to descend to the east of Coum Iarthar and follow the Boola lake trail back to Curraheen - a very pleasant walk with few navigation worries. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/62/comment/14737/
