Short Summary created by simon3, jackill,  3 Jul 2015
Park at Ballyduff graveyard, Q54076 10104 A A, room for 10 cars.
Walk back towards the R560 from the graveyard and turn right. Walk around 500m along the road and cross the bridge over the Glennahoo River. Take care while walking along the R560 as it is a busy road with no verges. After crossing the bridge, continue along the R560 for another 300m. Leave the R560 and turn right into a track at Q5460010350 B B. There is an old farmhouse with dormer windows and a sloped flat roof extension at the track entrance. Continue south-eastward for around 150m along this track to reach a T-junction.

Turn right there and follow a lane southwards to Maghanaboe at the head of the valley. The Glennahoo River twists and turns along the valley floor to the right. The narrow valley, some 3km long, is flanked by a sweep of steep slopes clothed with banks of scree. Crossing the wet ground before climbing the low ridge of Cnoc na Bánóige N Top.

Note: We no longer recommend going on the ridge immediately south of the graveyard because of access issues.

The top of this small summit gives interesting views towards the Glenahoo River and indeed all around since it is in the middle of a wild plateau ringed by interesting mountains. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/634/comment/5393/

Low, easily reached, with good views.

This top lacks prominence and is situated in the middle of a high plateau surrounded by much more interesting places. A bit like Lough Curra Mtn in the Galtees only wilder. Bar some sheep farmers only summiteers are going to be visiting it, so let's mention appropriate virtues: it can be picked up if you are crossing the valley to more interesting tops. It is well positioned for some great views such as the picture here where tops Beenbo (left) and Beenator frame a view of Brandon Bay. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/634/comment/6480/

See Beenbo for the last section of this walk.

Cnoc na Banoge North N Top is on the middle of a mini ridge in the middle of some rough bog. Interestingly on our way here from Beenbo, we spotted several Way Marked Way marker posts for a walking trail, spacing a bit far apart for comfort in foul weather in the middle of a bog though!

From here we descended to the col between the summit and point 383, before gradually descending to met the Garrivagh River, following the river to the track and back down to the car park.

All in all a fine walk, with good views and evidence of transhumance thrown in as well. To quench our thirst and appetites we headed first to the South Pole Inn for food (which also stocks London Pride bottled Ale!). Then to Hanafin's bar, where the local walkers hang out for some Guinness and chat, recommended indeed. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/634/comment/4169/
