A mini horseshoe
by TommyV  28 Mar 2021
I mostly followed Aidands directions. There is now a sign on the road marking the path for the Dulhallow Way at beside the bungalow mentioned by Aidand, and several more going through the private farm so I don't believe access through here is an issue. Parking might be as it's tight even for one car. I made a mini horseshoe out of this hike by continuing on from Caherbarnagh over to the East top and then dropping back down to the Dulhallow Way.

Underrated Mountain in Cork
by Musheraman  7 Mar 2022
Did this on March 1st on a lovely clear frosty morning, Parked at W17784 89018 starA, a school bus normally parks here
outside of school hours and there's space for one car behind. From here follow a track to a water tower and continue
in a south direction towards a weather station/coms mast, you will now see markers for the Duhallow Way, follow this
eastwards until Lough Murtagh comes into view, now head in a southeast direction up steep heathery ground until
reaching a tiny stone cairn marking Glanaprehane. The Summit of Caherbarnagh is now easily reached over grassy
ground marked by a trig pillar, I was very fortunate with great visability and the Paps, the Reeks and Mangerton were
very clear to the west and to my surprise I could make out the distinctive outline of Galtymore past Claragh and
Mushersmore to the east, Mullaghanish could be seen to the south.
From here I crossed over boggy ground to Stoukeen marked by a large cairn, I returned back along the same route
making a detour to Lough Murtagh. 4.5 hours Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/135/comment/23432/
