The summit is located in the townland of Aghamore. The Discoverer Map shows the name Tullybrack to the NW and Mulderg to the SE. It is not clear which applies to this hill, if either, but the former has been chosen as it is slightly nearer. The hill Sliabh D√° Chon, mentioned in the Annals of the Four Masters, is a lower point in these uplands to the NW. Note that there is also a townland of Tullybrack or Ora More nearby, but this is lower down near Belcoo. Has been called Reyfad.   Tullybrack is the second highest hill in the Fermanagh/S Tyrone area and the 873rd highest in Ireland. Tullybrack is the second most westerly summit in the Fermanagh/S Tyrone area.

A pleasing variation to an out and back route
by Harry Goodman  30 Sep 2010 On Sat 25 Sept 2010 I turned off the minor road from Boho to Mullylusty at H097423 (Point A) signed for Aganaglack Dual Court Grave and parked just before an entrance gate to Ballintempo Forest H0919743040 (Point B). Anticipating an out and back walk of some 16km I was surprised and pleased, just inside the gate, to note a board for a signed Aghnaglack Walk (12.3k). This coverd a major part of my intended outward route to Tullybrack and offered a circular walk which could then be followed after completing an out and back extension to Tullybrack about halfway around the waymarked trail, rather than an entire out and back route. It also had the advantage that it passed the Dual Court Grave on the return route. Initially I took the forest track due W for 3.2k to a junction H0631644302 (Point C), turned right and continued with this main track, with no turn offs, for about 3k to a fork in the track H0778945411 (Point D). The left branch of the fork was the start of the out and back section of my walk to gain the top of Tullybrack. I followed it along to its end at H0923045638 (Point E) where I turned left up a wide boggy firebreak in the trees for a few hundred metres to H0913945891 (Point F). From here the high point of the hill was clearly visable up to my left as a distinctive mound rising up from a large flatish area of treeless moorland. A surrounding cover of forestry in all directions restricted views but Cuilcagh and the Leitrim hills and Lough Erne were visable above the line of tree tops. The top was reached some 8k from the start. I retraced my route back to the fork in the track at H0778945411 (Point D) and rather than return from this point by my outward route opted to turn left and follow the signed Aghnaglack Walk (black arrows on stout wooden posts). The track eventually led down through the trees to open ground for fine views across to Cuilcagh and the Leitrim hills and a welcome relief after so much enclosed walking in the forest. Walkers should note that OSNI Sheet 17 (2008) shows this track stopping in trees near the Brimstone Rock with a dotted line extension beyond this point. This is not a true representation of what is on the ground as the quality of the track is maintained throughout back to the start and is mainly on open ground and not enclosed by trees. At a T junction H1029244146 (Point G) I turned right and followed the track along past tiny L Blocknet and a signed entrance path to the left for the Dual Court Grave (only 100 metres off route and well worth the visit). At the next T junction I turned left and was very soon back to the start. Total distance walked 15.2k in 3.5 hours. Apart from some open ground at the start and end the going was mainly through enclosed forest which I found somewhat tedious. Climbing is minimal and apart from a very short section of heather/boggy ground the route is all on very good forest tracks.

by three5four0  4 Jan 2010 Just off the minor Boho to Mullylusty road, a track which is sign posted for the Giants Grave leads to a small area to park in, by a gate at 092430 (Point H). if the gate is open there is further parking area, large enough for several cars just through the gate on the left, by a track junction.

From here, turn left (west) and walk several km to another track junction at 063443 (Point I), turning right here, shortly passing another track on your right, continue to the next junction by the Tullyscallen name on the map. Continue straight ahead and follow the track round a sharp right hand bend to another junction, this time taking the left hand branch, this junction when first arrived at doesn't seem to match the map, but it is the correct one. Follow this track to where it ends on the map at 092457 (Point J) (by the 386 height number on the map), the track continues on, but it is clear where the main track ends as the route starts to become over grown.

Look to your left and you should beside a fire break, follow this for about 250-290 metres and the summit should be clearly visible on your left, in an area of bog . The summit looks suspiciously like a buried Tomb, perhaps not surprisingly, given the amount of such sites in this area. The ground further west from the spot height, which looks higher, isn't. We visited & measured both by altimeter and the area at the spot height was the clear winner.

Return is by the way of ascent, however a visit to the double court tomb is a worthwhile objective and together with the summit makes a nice 11 mile stretch for the legs.
