Starting from the nire car park (Point A) we made our way up to the gap along the post marked trail. Turning south-east we contoured around the northern spur off Knocknalingady in to the Boolas (Coum Iarthar loughs ). Some steep ground can be encountered here depending on what height you come around in (staying at the same height as the gap is the way t go). After lunch at the lakes (great views) we shot up the largest of the gullies at the southern end of the coum to emerge roughly east of the summit. This is a handy(ish) gully to ascend (Martin might disagree (see pic)). From here we made our way towards fauscoum with the idea of turning west half way so as to come out at the top of the sean ban falls overlooking the spillogues. however, with the cloud that was down, and the lack of markers on that "beautiful" comeragh plateau, and our rustiness with map and compass (most of the problem) we ended up close to the top of the mahon falls. a few swears later we turned north and finally reached the falls overlooking the spillogues. A quick break and we headed down the spur to Point B and back to the car park. A fine walk (apart from the trudge on top), approx 5 hours. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/62/comment/2149/
