Views from the turf road
by glencree  24 Apr 2022
We used Jackill's route above in reverse, parking at a grassy verge at R866191 starB and walking to the end of the rough road. we climbed Knockaterriff from the start of Pigeon Rock Glen in a straightforward slog upwards, then crossed Knockaterriff Beg to reach the steep slope of Lyracappul. After admiring the views northwards over Aherhow from Carrignabinnia, we came down the shoulder to reach the col between Carrignabinnia and Monabrack where we picked up the turf track described above. This is a lovely descent, initially to the Black Rock river valley and over a ford to contour along the side of Knockaterrif. Although the track is indistinct on the map, it is well marked on the ground. The track picks up a beautiful sandstone wall and gives excellent views over to the Ringfort - cashel described in the Historical Environment viewer on maps.archaelology.ie. This is at R857 206 starC and is marked on Barry Dalby's Galtee map. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/121/comment/23494/
