Slight climb from Coumfea to Coumfea North Top, where we found a great many peat hags and a small cairn of stones about 300ft from where the GPS was indicating the summit. Really not too easy to determine the true top of this hill but we stopped roughly where we thought the top was and grabbed a quick lunch of banana sambos and tea in the lee of a peat hag. From here we made our way over to get a good view of the Sgilloge loughs. The wind was also kind enough to put on a display of the "sean bhean ag caitheabh tobac", where a small stream empties into the corrie and the spray is blown back in a plume that looks much like smoke. This was clearly visible from the lay-by below Knockanaffrin where we parked and now we went down to get a closer look. I will attach some photos when Ed sends them in to me (I forgot my camera so he was on photo duty). Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/88/comment/1265/
