An easy hill to access
by wicklore  31 May 2010
There is a track at R6395472575 A to the south of Glennagalliagh on OS map 58. This track gives access right to the summit of Glennagalliagh, and is the vehicle route for the turf cutters referred to by paddyhillsbagger. It also gives access to quad bikes and their transport vehicles as they were much in evidence when I was there on Sunday. Low slung vehicles won’t enjoy this bumpy track, but for those with suitable cars there is space to park a little way along the track at a track junction. Beyond this junction only rugged vehicles will negotiate the bumps and dips of the track.
For the walker it’s about a 1.5 km walk up to the summit, going past the slightly lower summit a couple of hundred metres to the south of the main top. The turf cutting is spread over the whole summit area. There are wonderful views down into the valley to the east. The eye sweeps around the valley, taking in Ballykildea Mountain and the steep south slopes of Moylussa and Cragnamurragh. I think the wire fence around the summit could be electrified but I didn’t see a warning sign.

There is a wide track gouged out of the bog which leads from just below Glennagalliagh to the east up to the col between Moylussa and Cragnamurragh. You can see this track in the photo. It is only 1km up this track so it makes access to the higher hills very easy. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/632/comment/5847/

Peat works!
by paddyhillsbagger  8 May 2010
Dropped down from Cragnamurragh to bag this top. The whole top is given over to peat harvesting and there were a few jeeps with helpers turning the sods to dry in the sun the day I was up. I did find a small collection of stones at a high point which I took to be the summit. I retraced my steps back up to Moylussa to get back to the car at Ballycugurran Forest Park R688 760 B where I started the day by bagging Ballykilldea Mtn.

gerloughnanne on Glennagalliagh Mountain, 2008
by gerloughnanne  31 Aug 2008
Climbed this late one evening in an aborted attempt to reach Cragnamurragh. Access from the summit of the raod that links Kilbane to Killaloe known as the gap. Theres a forestry fire break that leads all the way to the summitt that has been used by the quad bikers and scramblers. Came down via the gravel road through the bog.

Short Walk
by cuan  30 Dec 2013
2km past the Kilbane cross roads on The Gap Road turned left at A and parked after 0.7km along gravel road. Walked on 1.3km along the gravel road to summit/sheep pen, there are great views of Ballykildea Mtn, Moylussa,Cragnamurragh east to west.
Returned over a lower summit to the south, continued on down through path in forest break and then west-east on forest gravel road to car. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/632/comment/15293/
