Had a walk today for Caherbarnagh using aidand’s instructions. As he noted there is no yellow man indicator to direct one up the laneway beside the bungalow at 193892 F. I took shaunkelly’s advice and called to the house for permission to enter the field before beginning the ascent. Met a nice man who had no problem whatsoever and he confirmed that that this was indeed the Duhallow way. So straight up thru two fields and the waymarkers soon appear. This connects to a farm roadway and on into a passageway with rocks strewn on both sides. On the right of the gate in the distance is a green stile like those in the Galtees, etc. As soon as you cross over the stile turn sharp right and you’ll see another smaller stile which leads down to the stream coming from Lough Murtagh. Care required here with a bar secured here to aid crossing, could be exciting with increased levels of water after heavy rain and greasy rocks. Over another stile and aim for the post with the yellow way marker. From there simply follow aidand’s directions.
On another issue one of the photographs I admired most from the guide to Ireland’s Mountains summits was the one with the trig pillar on Caherbarnagh. Sadly this view can no longer be seen as there is now a colossal fence running along the ridge coming up from the valley from Knockabro and heading off into the distance towards Stoukeen. The pillar is enclosed in fence wire and it is not possible to walk around it. I encountered quad tracks while coming from the NW top so my guess is that that’s how the materials were taken up. I had intended doing a loop walk towards Stoukeen but not being sure regarding access issues there I returned via the way I had come up. I’ll put up some pictures as soon as I get a chance to upload them. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/135/comment/15279/
