There is very little to recommend about Mullaghareirk. Unless endless miles of forestry tracks and fir trees are your thing. Studying OS map 72 it would appear the other summits in the region have succommed to the same fate. It is hardly surprising that nobody has commented on any of the Mullaghareirks yet. There is nothing to mark the summit of Mullaghareirk, just a lot of trees and the remains of a forestry worker's lunch packaging. My recommendation would be to drive to R274 203 D, drive up the forest track, get out of the car, walk into the trees, declare yourself at the summit then get back into the car and find somewhere more interesting. We attempted it as part of one of the Mullaghareirk mountain trails. Finding any information about these prooved more difficult than the walk itself. The only mention on the internet is that there are 8 of them in total, all starting in Ashford or Broadford on the R515. This is a lie for starters as one of them starts at Glenquin. We drove out to Ashford R278 238 E to see what we could find. Ashford is a one horse town with a pub, a church and a shop. Saturday afternoon the shop was closed. The horse had left town. There is a sign that lists the 8 walks, where each one starts and ends, and what colour arrow you should attempt to follow. We decided the Lough Gay trail would be our best bet. We took the only road heading south and the forest track that skirts around Mullaghanuish (only 361m so not worthy of further mention). Many of the marker posts that mark the trails have faded so you have to guess as to which direction they once pointed. Your orienteering skills may come in handy. Other summits may be easier to find; the map shows a trig point on Knockacummer and Mount Eagle, and a cairn on Taur... Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/802/comment/3162/
